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 Democratsâ nominating convention, says his commitment to Clinton is âprofound.â
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.
âI want to vote for Hillary Clinton, donât get me wrong,â said Andrew, a former chairman of the national Democratic Party. âMy 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.â
