Only So Far

Here’s another example of what I was talking about below, with respect to the super delegate contest and the argument over how they should or will make their choice. Joe Andrew is a dyed-in-the-wool Clintonite. He was chair of the DNC, along with Ed Rendell, during Clinton’s last two years in office. He’s now a superdelegate from Indiana supporting Hillary Clinton.

From the Fort Wayne Journal Gazette

Joe Andrew, like Parker, a Hoosier superdelegate to the Democrats’ nominating convention, says his commitment to Clinton is “profound.”

Nevertheless, if Clinton and Obama head into the August convention with an equal number of delegates from state primaries and Obama has amassed more votes in those primaries, Andrew sounds less wedded to his commitment.

“I want to vote for Hillary Clinton, don’t get me wrong,” said Andrew, a former chairman of the national Democratic Party. “My commitment to her is profound, but I would be troubled if either she or Barack Obama actually became the nominee because superdelegates decided, opposed to actual voters going to the polls and pulling the lever.”
