Two quick items:

1) A Democrat superdelegate wants $20 million for his vote–which he then pledges to fork over to Democrat Hispandering efforts to register Mexican-American voters.

Question: How did this guy become a superdelegate? What qualifications did he have to meet?

In this tight battle for the democratic nomination we’ve heard a lot about the candidates courting super-delegates.

But one superdelegate is courting the candidates. He says he’ll sell his vote for a price. A very high price: $20 million.

Sacramento superdelegate Steven Ybarra says that eight-figure price is peanuts for the presidency. When asked whether it was right to offer what is clearly a quid pro quo? “Yeah, absolutely. People do it all the time,” answered Ybarra. But, not like this. Not in public, and not for such big bucks. It begs the question. Is he crazy? “Nobody’s said I’m crazy,” said Ybarra.

Ybarra wants every cent of the $20 million to go toward registering and educating eligible Mexican-American voters, who he calls the key to the White House.

2) Meanwhile, Hillary’s playing the white card (see also Begala)–and the Obama-supporting nutroots are not happy:

Clinton says Obama’s support among “hard-working Americans, white Americans, is weakening again:” In an interview Wednesday with USA TODAY, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton said that she would be the stronger nominee because she appeals to a wider coalition of voters — including whites who have not supported Barack Obama in recent contests. “I have a much broader base to build a winning coalition on,” she said. As evidence, Clinton cited an Associated Press article that she said “found how Sen. Obama’s support among working, hard-working Americans, white Americans, is weakening again, and how whites in both states who had not completed college were supporting me.”

…The political blogosphere — particularly the liberal side — is starting to react to Clinton’s comments. Pam Spaulding at Pam’s House Blend calls Clinton’s words “race-baiting.” ELROD at The Moderate Voice says it was “an appalling gaffe that goes well beyond (Barack Obama’s) Bittergate comment.” The Jed Report writes that “Clinton is making these comments to get attention. Her campaign is broke and she needs free media. She knows that the press loves to cover conflict, especially this kind of conflict. She’s serving up raw meat on a platter, consequences be damned.”

Really going to miss these food fights.
