Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen proposed a "superdelegate primary" today:
Here’s what our party should do: schedule a superdelegate primary. In early June, after the final primaries, the Democratic National Committee should call together our superdelegates in a public caucus.Well, the trial balloon burst quickly:
It is a call for a tight, two-day business-like gathering, whose rules would be devised by the national committee, of the leaders of our party from all over America to resolve a serious problem. There would be a final opportunity for the candidates to make their arguments to these delegates, and then one transparent vote.
The idea of having a primary among superdelegates isn't gaining a lot of traction.
A spokeswoman says Democratic National Committee chairman Howard Dean doesn't endorse the idea.
