What's a superdelegate?

Asked by segdeha (1720points) January 20th, 2008

In the process of nominating a candidate for president of the United States, the contenders win “delegates” (people who pledge to support the candidate at the nominating convention).

So, what is a “superdelegate”? Who are these people? Are they typically big-wigs in the parties? Are there a set number per state or are they national?
