The Issue: Superdelegates

This cool site, The Issue, takes on topics of interest and presents multiple points of view. Last night they posted an entry on Super Delegates, a rather arcane and misunderstood element of the primary process for the Democrats.

Here is the intro:

Superdelegates and the Democratic Nomination

The close race for the Democratic presidential nomination has focused national attention on the Democratic superdelegates, elected officials and committee members who comprise about one-fifth of all delegates, and the possibility that they could function as tiebreakers. While skeptics argue that superdelegates have never voted against the frontrunner after the primaries and won’t start now, many question whether, in this election cycle, the party elite could overrule the popular will.

Check out the rest of the points of view.
