    I see this as just another way of maintaining the authority of the elites.

    ALTHOUGH, I do understand the reasoning behind the Super Delegate system. And it does make sense.

    I just reject such concepts, as I do not think it is the best way, even if without them, things could get messy.

    Whatever the case, I do not think that the Democrats will need to use theirs.

    The GOP WILL likely go brokered, however, IF The Donald does not win, outright.....

    Doesn't matter as they are not like state delegates candidates win. They can change at the convention when any candidate wins more states and they do change. They back the candidate who wins the states. Don't count them.

    You should worry about your own party. Democrats have no problem with their rules for electing a nominee, no matter how many times Republicans tell them that they should.

    Against them. The only delegates that should matter are the ones up for grabs on the primary states. There's no reason to have them, they're redundant of a system already in place, and since they're not tied to the states, they could easily be corrupted and override the popular vote.
