“Superdelegates are not second-class delegates,” says Joel Ferguson, who will be a superdelegate if Michigan is seated. “The real second-class delegates are the delegates that are picked in red-state caucuses that are never going to vote Democratic.”
Idaho’s governor, Cecil Andrus, who has endorsed Barack Obama’s campaign, shipped out word today that Clinton and Joel Ferguson, the offending Michiganer who dissed on Idaho’s delegates, ought to apologize.
“Senator Clinton’s surrogates are telling Democrats in almost half the states in the country that they don’t matter, and that they are second class,” Andrus said in a prepared statement. “Senator Clinton needs to immediately denounce these comments and tell her campaign surrogates to stop taking cheap pot-shots at committed Democrats across the country.”
