April 12, 2008 Oklahoma Democratic Party Chairman Ivan Holmes has a reputation for letting you know what's on his mind. But one thing he won't share is his choice for president, and because he's a superdelegate to the Democratic convention, people keep asking.
April 5, 2008 Utah's Democratic caucuses were dominated by Sen. Barack Obama, but two of Utah's six superdelegates have been formally committed to Sen. Hillary Clinton. Now Helen Langan, inundated with voicemail and e-mail, is a superdelegate under super pressure.
April 4, 2008 Superdelegate Ron Sims is the county executive of King County, Wash., which includes Seattle and Microsoft's hometown, Redmond. It's a big job, and a politically difficult one — especially for an African American backing Hillary Clinton in state Barack Obama won handily.
April 3, 2008 Whatever happens in Pennsylvania's April 22 primary, it is the superdelegates nationwide who will likely decide who gets the Democratic presidential nomination. Three committed superdelegates from the Keystone State shared their views on the race.

March 31, 2008 Former president Bill Clinton on Sunday spoke to democratic activists at the state's annual party convention. But his real audience was a small number of undeclared superdelegates who may determine the presidential nominee for the Democratic Party.
