Did you know that Clinton superdelegate Sheila Jackson-Lee managed to be soundly booed in two Texas counties Saturday, Harris and Ft. Bend. I hear from my man @pbuzz that the crowd over at TSU got so rowdy with it she could barely deliver her remarks. Ft. Bend was a little bit nicer, but I think she still got the message.

By standing idly by while the Clinton campaign she supports went into the racial gutter to attack Barack Obama, her own political future is now very much in doubt if Hillary loses. Political loyalty is one thing, but Mrs. Jackson-Lee should not have let loyalty interfere with her own dignity and principles, and a knowledge of right and wrong.

Superdelegates - Are y'all watching what's going on down here?

Maybe @pbuzz will take this opportunity to come out of the woodwork and post a little more detail. Yep - I'm calling you out.

Update: Here's the video.

    I agree with your analysis ... a number of these Congressional Black Caucus members that jumped over to support Clinton are going to be in a real bad way when/if Hillary isn't on the ticket. It will be interesting to see how enthusiastically they support Obama when/if he wins the nomination...

    Villager,

    I think a lot of superdelegates are sweating right now. Jackson-Lee is watching as her political future goes down the toilet because she's stood by her candidate choice, even as that candidate worked overtime to make race the central issue of her campaign. Black folks are too sophisticated of an electorate to let that slide, and I think she knows she'll be paying the price.

    That's what I'm talking about. Throw her out of office ASAP.

    Eddie, thanks for dropping in.

    I think she's on her way out and knows it. Her future is tied with that of Hillary Clinton as far as politics go, and the other politicians here definitely smell blood in the water.
