9. If a delegate wanted to be a delegate for Clinton
they would run as a delegate for Clinton, not as an uncommitted delegate. In my case, I'm planning to run as an uncommitted delegate and try to get selected from the 12th district as such. I doubt there would be uncommitted delegates who would vote for Hillary. I was going to vote for Dodd, but I think there's a better chance that we'll have at least 15% uncommitted than that we'll have 15% for Dodd. My vote will mean more as an uncommitted vote.

If you're supporting Dennis, then you should vote for him. It's all those Edwards, Biden, Richardson and Obama people who should definitely vote uncommitted. I was torn, since I could vote for Dodd, but I'm going with uncommitted. It's also to allow for the very, very outside chance that no one will have enough votes at the convention and they'll need a consensus candidate -- and Gore could be drafted from the convention floor. I know this is probably not going to happen, believe me, but there is that one in a million chance.

Of course, if our delegates really don't get seated, none of this will matter anyway.
