Undecided Superdelegates Don't Feel Bound By Primaries

Many Democratic superdelegates who are still undecided say the most important factor in their decision is simple -- they just want a winner in November.

But after nearly four months of primaries and caucuses, they still aren't sure who that is and they don't seem in a hurry to make up their minds.

It also appears they're not interested in any artificial process that might force them to choose between Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton.

North Carolina superdelegate David Parker said he'd prefer to endorse the best candidate. But Parker says he can't find any distinguishing factors to help him decide.

His strategy now is to consider which candidate is most electable and whether the candidates will help others down the ballot.

There are 17 Superdelegates in North Carolina, and Parker is one of the ten who remain undecided.

Of those who have made a choice, they're backing Obama 6-1.

    Our super-delegates are charged with a responsibility of supporting our democratic political party. These are people charged with a responsibility to help the democratic party win the November general election. This is accomplished by casting their delegate votes for a candidate who is most electable. Our democratic primaries are far from finished. America has not yet decided which of Obama and Clinton is most electable. Those super-delegates who have already cast their vote, are violating their charge and their responsibility. These delegates, who have cast their votes, are not patriotic; they are attempting to impose their personal opinions and their wills upon our American populace. A super-delegate casting his vote before the will of the people has been fully expressed, is wrongful behavior. I do not appreciate those who attempt render both my opinion and my vote, meaningless.
