Best Primer on Super Delegates

If you want to read a good analysis of the numerous nuances of the super delegate debate, check out this piece: Your Conscience or Your Constituency by Ron Klain from the New Yorks Times (with a great link to Edmund Burke! - I'm not kidding).

He lays out well the permutations and shows that there are nearly as many ways for the super delegates to approach the judgment as there are delegates.

Hopefully, it'll all be moot. As Ben Smith over at Politico points out, few of the super delegates want such responsibility (or take time thinking of Burke). Or as I pointed out to a friend, hopefully it's not this. Yuck.
