My wife just told me that Chelsea Clinton is calling super delegates...
Advertisements [?]
I've been ignoring this whole story as it sounded like tabloid stuff and I try not to get mired down in that. However my wife was expressing how incredulous it was that Chelsea was calling super delegates and I found that kind of surprising.

Why would she be doing that? What's the deal?

And for the record, I'm fairly ignorant of "pimping out" gate because I refused to click on links like that but I'm glad that guy got suspended.

I just want to know what this calling super delegates thing is about.
