WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at http://www.DemocraticConventionWatch.com
We know we've come a long way from the early days in January when we started our Superdelegate Lists. Back then most people didn't know what a superdelegate was. Now it's hard to go anywhere without hearing about them.
Today we received a press release from a mystery DNC member announcing the start of MisterSuperDelegate.org
The site is well worth a visit.DNC Member Launches Website Exclusively Covering Superdelegates“MisterSuperDelegate.org” Debunks Myths, Answers User Questions andProvides Insight on Nomination ProcessFor Immediate Release
March 24, 2008 ( MisterSuperDelegate.org is a site authored by an undeclared Superdelegate, and seeks to debunk urban myths about who Superdelegates are and how they are engaging in the nomination. ) –People have lots of questions about Superdelegates, and on MisterSuperDelegate.orgMisterSuperDelegate.org has a complete series on debunking myths - popular yet incorrect notions about the process.
they can ask and receive unfiltered answers.MisterSuperDelegate.org – which redirects to the more concise “MrSuper.org” domain – also provides links to news stories and data to support claims made on the site.Current blog posts address The site claims that “There are no undecided Superdelegates – only undeclared ones.” & Michigan elections and the non-viable ideas of a primary or convention just for Superdelegates.
Or at least, there are very few of them. The majority of undeclared Supers are just that - undeclared. It doesn't mean they don't have a clear preference. Keep that in mind when people are talking about the need for the candidates to lobby or not lobby the Supers more often. Because the truth is, it's really not that necessary.
Pet Peeve: the spelling of Super Delegate. I wonder what William Strunk would have to say? I prefer the two-word phrasing "Super Delegate" as opposed to the invented one-word "Superdelegate," because I don't think it's a real word. If anyone knows a reference tool that can verify the appropriate term that would be helpful.
And to answer the questions that will inevitably be raised:
1. Yes this is from an actual DNC member
2. No... we will not tell you who it is.
