The ever-feckless Dr. Dean wants the superdelegates to announce their preferences by July — but he doesn’t want a gathering of superdelegates? If finishing the fight is a priority, then a superdelegate straw poll should be a no-brainer. The only thing I can think is that Dean is being pushed around by those with an incentive to drag this out — the Clinton campaign, of course, but also superdelegates who want more time to exact political promises.
Since there almost certainly won’t be revotes in Florida and Michigan, there could be a credentialing showdown. And there’s a real possibility of a popular vote/pledged delegate split. It really is possible that the Democratic nomination could remain unsettled all summer. Great job, People-Powered Howard!
