Dems May Force Early Superdelegate Vote

From the Politico:


Reid, Pelosi, Dean may intervene in nomination

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid  said Thursday that he may try to force undecided superdelegates to make their decisions in the Democratic presidential race if it stretches into June.

Reid said he would consider writing a joint letter with Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) demanding that superdelegates make their endorsements public.

“The three of us, we may write a joint letter [to superdelegates],” said Reid. “We might do individual letters. We are in contact with each other.” …

Both Dean and Reid have made no secret of their desire to see the nomination fight end by the end of June.

Reid said he would not rush any of the superdelegates for now.

“People will have plenty of opportunity after the last primary on June 2 to make a decision about what they are going to do,” he said.

However, when asked by a reporter if he would be forced to weigh in on the race, Reid replied, “I might have to.” …

Of course this would be done to help Mr. Obama sew up the nomination — no matter what.

Think how this must burn up Mrs. Clinton, who even put some of the Reid family on the payroll to buy his support.

Mr. Obama must have made a higher bid.
