No, I stand by my assertion that is more selection process than election, even if some stages of the selection are based upon the popular support of a limited segment of the Party.
The Democrats have more than 50. Presumably Washington DC has a primary. I believe that American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico etc... Democrats Abroad also has its own primary.
"The thief and the murderer follow nature just as much as the philanthropist. Cosmic evolution may teach us how the good and the evil tendencies of man may have come about; but, in itself, it is incompetent to furnish any better reason why what we call good is preferable to what we call evil than we had before."
"Evolution and Ethics" T.H. Huxley (1893)
