Debbie Wasserman Schultz's weird defence of super delegates

Blaze - The DNC chairwoman explained that the unpledged delegates, or the superdelegates, are a completely separate category from the pledged delegates, which Clinton and Sanders were competing for in the Granite State.

“Unpledged delegates exist, really, to make sure that party leaders and elected officials don’t have to be in a position where they are running against grassroots activists,” Wasserman Shultz said, adding that the Democratic Party “highlights inclusiveness and diversity at our convention” and wants to give activists “every opportunity” to participate, which she says it what the superdelegates are for.

[Jake] Tapper simply responded by saying, “I’m not sure that answer would satisfy an anxious young voter, but let’s move on.”
