One of the uncommitted supers (or at least as of today)
is DNC Member Donna Brazile (DC) - former campaign manager of Al Gore.

Wonder why?

2. The problem is
they haven't updated their list since March 20.

3. Oh. So maybe she
has submitted her commitment already. I did not know that. I thought that this was THE go-to website. I will see what else I can find on it.

5. Hey there, rosie
DCW is the go-to site for delegate updates. The list of uncommitted super delegates only gets updated 1) when add-ons from the various states are finally assigned, 2) when they add new super delegates, as eg. Childers in MS was just elected and ergo became a SD, and 3) when they finally endorse and get moved here.

I'm pretty sure Donna Brazile is on the DNC committee that stripped FL and MI of their delegates. It would be unseemly for her to endorse a candidate until the seating of those two states' delegates is resolved on May 31st. She needs to preserve an unbiased mien until then.

4. Actually,
I think the list is actually more up to date than the March 20 date on it suggests. The list of supers for Obama is longer than the list for Clinton, and that certainly wasn't the case as of March 20. So, I think the list may be up-to-date, but they just haven't changed the date on the web site (who knows why). I suspect Brazile is still uncommitted. I think if/when she commits it will make news of some sort. She has said more than once that if the supers decided contrary to the overall vote on the pledged delegates she would quit the Dem. party (not sure she really meant it). I'm guessing she will be one of the ones to announce after June 3.

6. donna has not committed because
she wants to stay on the teevee. and as a member of the dnc, she should be neutral. she has stated many times that she will not commit until the primaries are over.
but make no mistake, she loves barack.
