Last Week's Poll Results

We asked "Should Super Delegates be allowed to choose Democratic Nominee"? The results were overwhelmingly No - 84%, Yes - 11%, and Undecided - 5%

Let's hope the super delegates are not the determining factor in the Democratic Party nomination process this year. More importantly, let's hope the Democratic National Committee eliminates super delegates in future elections and institutes a system that allows the voters to decide their nominee for President.

10:27 AM Here is a column I just read by Geraldine A. Ferraro who was the Democratic Vice-President candidate in 1984. She is a supporter of Senator Hillary Clinton and writes about why she supports super delegates being involved in the democratic nomination process. Ferraro helped create these delegates after the 1980 Presidential election and explains why she feels they are needed.

Thanks for posting Ms. Ferraro's historical input the superdelegate situation. It was informative and gives more perspective on why we are where we are at now with this issue.
