Dozens of Jewish Super-Delegates May Hold Key to Democratic Race (Jennifer Siegel, Mar 20, 2008, The Forward)

According to a new survey conducted by the Forward, a disproportionately large share of the Democratic party’s super-delegates are Jewish. Many of them have declared their support for Hillary Clinton, accounting for more than 15% of her current backers. [...]

In the current presidential primary, the support of Jewish party insiders is particularly critical for Clinton, who won contests in New York, New Jersey and California and has pledged support from a preponderance of Jewish super-delegates in the Golden State and the Northeast — including nearly a dozen in her home state of New York.

Does Mr. McPeak know about this?

So it'll be those pesky, perfidious Jews that will "steal" the election from the rightful Messiah.

Oh, this does just get richer and richer.

15%. From a group that, generously, makes up 2% of the population? Geez, maybe we do run the world.

But we'll bend over backwards and twist into pretzels in order to reassure the world that we don't, no, really, we don't, nossuh.

That way, you see, they'll believe that we're really benign.... That we won't stand in the way of the Great Black/White Hope. The Rev. Wright can say what he wants about us. We will NOT be blamed for tripping up the latest Messiah. Nossuh.

Which would mean that Obama has it wrapped up.
