It Depends on the Meaning of the Word "Will"

Given how many have been disgraced lately, maybe the last thing Hillary and Barack need is to be associated with their party's superdelegates.

Nevertheless, Hillary supporters have not so subtly threatened to pull funding from the DCCC if she doesn't get more cooperation:

Angered that Pelosi wants Democratic insiders to follow the will of voters when they cast their own "superdelegate" votes in the nomination race, 20 of Clinton's top fund-raisers issued a veiled threat to Pelosi and warned her to change her tune.

"We have been strong supporters of the [Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee]," they wrote, referring to the House fund-raising arm overseen by Pelosi. "We therefore urge you to clarify your position on superdelegates and reflect in your comments a more open view."

Aah. The democracy of the Democratic Party.
