Another take on those Democratic super delegates....

... that might confound my assumption that Hillary Clinton will walk away with the nomination if she can even stay close.

The Gay Patriot points out that there are 21 openly gay Democratic super delegates. Twelve have come out for Hillary, two for Barack, and seven remained uncommitted.

I'd never thought about gay super delegates (and 21 is not necessarily a small number, given how things may shake out).

But what astounds me is that over half of them are supporting Hillary, even though the she-Clinton--as Waldo points out in If You Like Tokenism, You'll Love the Clintons--rarely if ever goes out on a limb to support them.

You've got to wonder if those twelve Hillary delegates know that.
