We Want the Superdelegates To Do Their Job
We want the superdelegates to play the role they\'re supposed to play in the democratic nomination. Superdelegates, as current or former party leaders and elected officials (PLEOs) are there to use their independent and tried and trusted judgment to monitor the nominating process and to make tough decisions with the best interest of the Democratic Party at heart. Because they are themselves previously elected officials, they do represent the voice of the people, and play an important role as a check and balance in our Democratic presidential nominating process. We\'ve given money--and time--to Democratic candidates and causes, and we\'ll support others who stand up for the rules agreed to by all adherents to the Democratic Party since 1982. We want the Superdelegates to continue to monitor the process and want to remind them that even though many have made public endorsements, they are not bound in any way, shape, or form until they cast their ballot at the Democratic National Convention in August 2008.
