WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
There's been talk of Edwards playing kingmaker at the convention, sending his delegates one way or another for whatever reason. But I think this assumes a time gone by, when delegates would march in lockstep for their state bosses and/or their candidate. The Politco agrees:
And his delegates won’t automatically follow his lead, and might instead shift to a media-anointed front-runner.Edwards could make a deal or an endorsement, but we shouldn't assume that his delegates would follow blindly in line.
“Nobody’s bound to him. You guys, the media, are the ones who will decide,” said one veteran of past delegate processes who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he supports one of Edwards’ rivals.
