LAUREL, MD.—Rep. Rahm Emanuel (D-Ill.), an uncommitted superdelegate torn between two friends, told me Friday he is waiting “for the voters to issue their verdict” before making any decision.
“When the primaries are done,” Emanuel said, “If that process is over and if there is not a clear nominee, I suppose I’ll have to do something.” He said he was not sure what yardstick he will use to measure voter preference—popular vote, delegates won, etc.
Democratic rivals for the presidential nomination, Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton are “two good friends,” he said. Obama won his North Side Chicago congressional district in the Illinois primary.
