Democratic Change Commission Recommends Eliminating Superdelegates

Hillary Clinton created controversy among Democrats when she tried to win the nomination based upon seeking the support of superdelegates once Barack Obama had a clear lead among pledged delegates. The Democratic Change Commission, which includes many Obama supporters, has now recommended that the Democrats eliminate the ability of superdelegates to vote as they wish. Instead they will have to vote based upon the state’s results. Assuming that the 2012 nomination will not be contested, this would be a good time to experiment with new rules.

    If the superdelegates had voted for either the popular vote winner or the winner of their respective states, Hillary would have been the nominee.

    That’s only if you use the twisted math used by many Clinton supporters. If that was the case, Clinton wouldn’t have needed to attempt to win the nomination with the use of superdelegates.
