Argument: Superdelegates have too much power relative to ordinary voters
- Andy Lutes. "Superdelegates could give Clinton unfair edge". Daily Nebraskan. February 12th, 2008 - "Rhodes Cook, a political analyst, recently calculated that superdelegates represent only seven millionths of a percentage of the Democratic party, yet make up nearly a fifth of the votes at the convention. That's a staggering inequality unrivaled in national politics."
- Paul Rockwell. "Screw the Voters. Let Superdelegates Decide!". CommonDreams.org. February 18, 2008 - "All Democratic members of the House and Senate become superdelegates automatically. Let us not forget that George Bush led the vast majority of Democrats by the nose into pre-emptive war, implicating most of the current superdelegates in the biggest catastrophe of recent decades. What makes these individuals wiser than nurses, technicians, custodians, lawyers, teachers, athletes, fire fighters, proprietors-all who voted in good faith in the recent primary? Why don’t the superdelegates do the job they were elected to do-end the war-and let the voters do their job in the primaries-select the next nominee?"
