Now is the time for all goor superdelegates to come to the aid of their party.
The way ahead will test the superdelegates. They should end this now. They should come one by one to Barack Obama and give him a boost that shows the country they will no longer tolerate the wrecking of the party.Barack Obama does not want a season of attack politics but he has no choice but to recognize the true colors of the Clinton effort. The only force that can stop this war, in which the media will be happily complicit, is to move on a daily basis to Barack and to make it clear this is for the party. This is because you know that both candidates are good but that Barack has shown the stuff needed to be the leader of the future.

Consider this. A bloodied and ruined candidate named Barack Obama who has beaten off Hillary Clinton just as we knew he would.

Or a candidate, Barack Obama, who was chosen by acclamation by winning a clear majority of the delegates, including superdelegates.

Initially this movement requires only thirty or so brave souls to create parity with Clinton. Then we can watch to see if the Clintons continue their kitchen sink attacks. If they do another forty or so is all that will be needed to end this.

It is time for superdelegates to be superdelegates.

It is time for them to come to the aid of their party.
