Pelosi Stays Strong

Despite a nasty little letter from several Clinton supporters, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is sticking to her guns. According to CNN:

A recent letter from several Hillary Clinton fundraisers to Nancy Pelosi [asked her to]step back from her contention that superdelegates should support the pledged-delegate leader...

Pelosi spokesman Brendan Daly said late Wednesday the California Democrat stands by her argument that the party's superdelegates would do damage if they go against the will of voters and hand the nomination to the candidate who finished second among those delegates awarded from the round of caucuses and primaries.

'The speaker believes it would do great harm to the Democratic Party if superdelegates are perceived to overturn the will of the voters,' Daly said. 'This has been her position throughout this primary season, regardless of who was ahead at any particular point in delegates or votes.'
