8. I am not sure about this.
It's fine for me; I'm voting for Kucinich (or Gravel if Dennis pisses me off between now and then, which is possible). However, if I were supporting one of the nonlisted candidates, I am not sure I'd go for this:

A vote for uncommitted is a vote to send delegates to the Democratic National Convention who are not committed or pledged to any candidate. Those delegates can vote for any candidate they choose at the Convention."


How do you know an uncommitted delegate isn't going to decide to vote for Clinton?
