Democratic Congressional super delegates
To all Democratic members of Congress: With Senators Obama and Clinton virtually splitting pledged delegates in every state that has had a primary or caucus so far, it seems more and more likely that the next Democratic presidential candidate will be determined by a vote of the super delegates at the convention in Denver. No one knows what will happen at the Democratic convention yet, but we are worried that it could be very un-democratic. Super delegates seem to be the modern day equivalents of smoke-filled back rooms, and they are scary. Therefore, we must ask you to vote with the will of the people of your state when the time comes. We ask this of you because whether your constituency elect Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton as their choice for Democratic nominee, the people of your state chose you to be their voice in Washington. Voting against the people who elected you to represent them is the antithesis of your duty to them. Therefore, we the undersigned urge you to truly represent your constituency by adding your vote to the vote of the people of your state at the Democratic National Convention in August.
