    The complaining over Super Delegates is silly.

    Representative Democracy.

    You support your party officials and, supposedly - as the Dem blogs claim - work to elect them so that they can enact policy - concrete "It Affects You" policy - on your behalf.

    But they also help decide voting your party's Presidential Candidate, and now their judgement is wholly impaired if they don't go your way?

    The cognative dissonance continues to echo.

        You said that since Caucuses are undemocratic, then clearly so are Superdelegates.

        Our Superdelegates are primarily people we have already elected.  They're people we invested time, energy, and money into so that they can make reasoned judgement for us all, and hold to our party's ideological/policy mission.

        But suddenly if they don't go my way, then they're exercising poor judgement at best, and turncoat subversive DLCers at worst.  Or "undemocratic" as you warrant.

        Last I checked, Caucuses were not the same thing.

        Apples and oranges.
