Anyway, whew, sorry - Joe Lieberman has been stripped of his superdelegate status: Lieberman's endorsement of Republican John McCain disqualifies him as a super-delegate to the Democratic National Convention under what is informally known as the Zell Miller rule, according to Democratic State Chairwoman Nancy DiNardo.
As my DC friends have reiterated all about the same time, superdelegates (all congressionally elected Democrats of each state as well as the Governor and other designated DNC folks) are more like stupiddelegates. It subverts the democratic process. Superdelegates are a way to have both direct primary elections, while keeping the party bosses happy. Well, at least Joe Lieberman doesn't have a say because he endorsed John McCain, the newly right wing Senator from Arizona.
