They will do part of the roll call, then move to declare Obama the nominee by acclimation rather than finish it and get an actual final count.
I think that sucks.
why does that suck?
Because you don't end up with a full accurate count. You get the fake pseudo-unanimous result. I want to see the actual vote, with all delegates and super-delegates putting themselves out there and saying who, after everything, they still wanted. That didn't happen.
i can appreciate that...
i was a little weirded out myself when pelosi asked for the yeas and nays and then almost without hesitation said that she got a 2/3rds majority. it was like a clap-off when you vote for your favorite open-mic comedian or karaoke singer...
Yeah, exactly. This is serious stuff. There should be no such thing as a "voice vote". For that matter, there shouldn't be anonymous voting. Every one of those delegates should have to go on the record.
