One can't help but notice how undemocratic the Democratic Party is. The party's so-called "superdelegates" will make up approximately one-fifth of the total number of convention delegates. Regular voters do not choose these people. They are party insiders, current and former office holders, union leaders and other special interests. At their convention, each superdelegate vote will be equivalent to the votes of approximately 10,000 regular Democratic voters, and each is free to vote as he or she chooses without regard to the will of regular voters.

Just as troubling is the party's decision to deny Florida and Michigan Democrats any representation at the national convention. The party could have simply punished those states, but it chose to disqualify the votes of millions of Michigan and Florida Democrats. Other than superdelegates, are any Utah Democrats proud of what is going on?
