Check my original post on New Hampshire
Superdelegates for 2016 Primary.
Lot of people, many of them (tellingly) Bernie supporters, just do NOT seem to get the raison d’être as to why the Democratic Party (the DNC) has Superdelegates.
Delegates that honor the will of the people are the NORMAL delegates! That is already in place. These are the so called PLEDGED delegates. They reflect the will of the voters. Done. Given.
The whole point of having Superdelegates, per the DNC, is to temper the will of the voters IF proven, professional democrats — many of whom have won elections — believe that the will of the voters may not be to the best strategic interest of the Party.
Simple as that.
Plus why single out New Hampshire. There are Superdelegates in every State. There were Superdelegates in Iowa.
Plus why should folks from outside of New Hampshire have any say in our Superdelegates.
Here is something that will get the Bernie folks riled. Bill Clinton is a Superdelegate in New York State! Guess who will get his vote.
