I tend to disagree with Scott Paul below about the role of superdelegates in this year’s contest. Reform and redirection of the process may make sense for the future — but once the gun went off this year, my view is that you leave the structure as it was when the race began.
Any manipulation or holier than thou attitude on what delegates should do or shouldn’t do by the competing campaign machines and their followers will only be seen as meddling by the rival camp.
The rules were clear about the role of super delegates — and they’ll vote the way they believe is fit and fair. And yes, they may even change their minds in the upcoming six months.
Here is Politico‘s just published roster on where the superdelegates stand now.
