It's misleading to call The Committee members super delegates. Naturally they can support any candidate they choose, this is still America.

This is the first election cycle I have noticed them doing that, I don't know who started it.

If I had to venture a guess it's the lamestream media providing cover for the DNC because they do have the party apparatchik that do have a vote(s) to cast in case the peasants voted for the wrong candidate. I think last cycle was their first.

Calling them "Committee members" makes it sound like the establishment's vote is more important than the people's (which, of course, is the case). First I heard was the Democratic primaries in 2004.

Meanwhile, Iowa and the caucus states haven't even awarded delegates yet.
