Brazile Will Quit if Superdelegates Tap Nominee

By    |   Wednesday, 13 February 2008 11:23 AM

Political strategist Donna Brazile said she will quit her position with the Democratic National Committee if superdelegates decide who gets the Democratic presidential nomination.

The superdelegate vote “should reflect the will of the people,” Brazile, who managed Al Gore’s 2000 presidential campaign and is herself a superdelegate, told National Public Radio.

These delegates are Democratic insiders, including members of Congress and governors, who can cast votes at the Democratic convention in August regardless of primary results.

On the eve of the Maryland and Virginia primaries, Hillary Clinton had 243 committed superdelegates and Barack Obama had 156, according to the Associated Press.

Brazile said party elders have a role to play, but voters should lead the way — which means whoever goes to the convention with the most delegates won in primaries and caucuses should get the nomination.

“I don’t want to superimpose my personal views,” she added. “I want to reflect the will of the voters. Honestly, I don’t want to decide this.”
