Obama strategist targets super delegates
by UPI

WASHINGTON - David Axelrod, a key strategist for Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama, said Sunday the party's super delegates should follow primary results.

With the Illinois senator trailing Senate colleague Hillary Clinton of New York, among super delegates yet leading in most other key electoral categories, Axelrod said on CBS' "Face the Nation" such powerful delegates should adjust their support in reaction to primary results.

"Super delegates doesn't mean that they should leap over the will of the people in a single bound," the Obama supporter said. "It means they should pay attention to what's going on and make a judgment as to who would be the strongest candidate based on the results of the primaries."

Howard Wolfson, communications chief for Clinton's campaign, countered that stance by saying the super delegates were simply voting for the person they thought would make the best candidate.

"Sen. Obama's campaign is vigorously attempting to secure their support. But the reason that so many support us is because they know that Sen. Clinton is the candidate with the real solutions that we need to tackle our tough problems," Wolfson said on the CBS program.
