Harry Reid Defends Superdelegate System: Iowa, New Hampshire Too White To Decide Future Of Country | Video | RealClearPolitics

Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV) defended the superdelegate system in the Democratic party nominating process in an interview with NBC's Andrea Mitchell on Thursday. Reid said Iowa and New Hampshire have "no diversity." Reid said he asked himself, "how in the world could we have the future of this country be dependent" on these two states?

"The process was totally unfair before -- eight years ago. Eight years ago, I looked at this and I thought, how in the world could we have the future of this country be dependent on Iowa, which is 93% white, and we have New Hampshire which is 97% white, no diversity, no diversity in Iowa. And have the final decision made as to who is going to be the president of the United States based on those two states, it was wrong," Reid said.

Mitchell asked Reid how the superdelegate system is a fair process if Bernie Sanders "clobbered" Clinton in New Hampshire with a 22-point landslide yet they both came out with 15 delegates each due to 6 superdelegates giving their support to Clinton.

Hoosiers banking on small lineup to pay Big Ten dividends

It’s OK to feel conflicted about Indiana.

Truth is, even this late in the season, the Hoosiers might still be figuring it all out themselves.

How else can you explain a team that dominates Michigan in Ann Arbor, then inexplicably loses at Penn State? A team that can jump on top of fourth-ranked Iowa by 16 in the first half only to watch the Hawkeyes score on 13 consecutive possessions and rally to take the lead in the second?

It has helped make the Hoosiers' offense one of the nation's most efficient. (They rank 16th in adjusted offense, according to Ken Pomeroy.) But they’re not exactly a team that comes to mind when the phrase "lockdown defense" is thrown about.

The Hoosiers can be a spurt away from winning or losing just about any game.

Indiana has had runs of 10 or more points in eight of its 12 Big Ten games, including Thursday night’s 85-78 victory over Iowa.
