Obama vs. Hillary in NV.

[Clinton] captured the popular vote, but Obama edged her out for national convention delegates, taking 13 to her 12.

The fact that someone can win the popular vote and yet walk away with less actual power in the nomination process is, to put it mildly, dumb as hell. While I'd much rather see Obama win than Hillary, if Hillary gets more popular votes, guess what, SHE SHOULD WIN. This whole idea of delegates and other indirect election processes seem to me to exist basically to take power away from the people and give it to fat-cats in political parties. Rather undemocratic, don't you think?
