Dems to End Superdelegates

This ought to go a long way toward ensuring that future Democratic presidential contests are not as drawn out as the one between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton in 2008: The Democratic Party is looking to eliminate superdelegates from the party’s national convention. Superdelegates are elected officials and party leaders who are free to cast their vote for whomever they want; under the new rules, the Democratic National Committee would require them to cast their vote in accordance with the results from their state.
