Democratic Superdelegates

From Joan Walsh at Salon.

[C]laiming that there's one clear way for superdelegates to vote is either naïve or dishonest. The Obama campaign seems to know this, even if many supporters, most notably, are acting as though superdelegates must support the pledged-delegate winner. Obama's remarks have shaded towards the point of view that superdelegates should support the voters' choice, while his campaign manager, David Axelrod, has said they should vote for the person they think is best. As with most things, Obama's campaign has played the media and expectations game better than the Clinton campaign, succeeding in having it both ways, and leaving itself open to making whichever argument fits its circumstances best in August. . . .
