Jason R. Rae
Democratic superdelegate and Obama supporter
I firmly believe that at this point in the Democratic primary nomination there is no such thing as an undecided superdelegate. Instead, what we have are undeclared superdelegates.
These remaining 300 or so people all very likely have a candidate they personally prefer, but are just waiting for the right moment to make it public. One of the key things they are waiting for is the result of tomorrow's Pennsylvania primary. So what are potential Obama and potential Clinton superdelegates looking for tomorrow?
Those who are decided for Senator Clinton but have not yet announced, are looking for a large win to show that she has the potential to remain an active player in this race. They want to see a decisive victory of at least 10 points.
The same thing goes for those decided for Senator Obama but not yet pledging support. Pennsylvania has always been an uphill battle for Senator Obama. So while a loss would be disappointing, a narrow loss would be seen as a positive in a state where Clinton had been heavily favored. It would indicate his recent problems have not really hurt Senator Obama's electability and that he still remains a viable player in big swing states.
Everything hinges on tomorrow. I have a feeling that after the results, we will see a surge of superdelegates announcing their support for one of the two candidates, bringing one of the two candidates much closer to receiving the 2,025 votes needed to win the nomination.
