Howard Dean's Superdelegate Double Standard

Much has been made of Dr. Dean's exhortation to superdelegates to make up their minds. Nancy Pelosi and Donna Brazille, among others, have made similar entreaties of the supers. They have the right to express their opinion on this matter, but their pleas ring hollow because they are themselves superdelegates.
For months the three of them have been feigning neutrality in the Hillary-Obama contest. While fooling nobody, their "neutrality" supposedly gives them the moral authority to ask for decisions from the supers.
If this unholy trinity wants to be taken seriously they must come out of the closet. They are all superdelegates. Dr. Dean, Speaker Pelosi, Ms. Brazille, lead by example! Make your own preferences known; only then you will have the right to tell the other superdelegates what to do and when to do it. Until then SYFPH!
