We are disappointed at the recent letter you have written on behalf of your support for Hillary Clinton as the Democratic nominee for President of the United States of America, not because you enthusiastically support your candidate, but because this letter urges "superdelagates" to overturn the votes of the American people.

Elections are not held in back rooms, they are held in the voting booths. As much as Hillary Clinton is qualified to be president, it is clear that the voters believe Barack Obama to be more qualified. He has won more pledged delagates, more votes, and more states. The math simply does not add up, and this is a fact; therefore, the only path for Hillary Clinton to gain the nomination is to persuade the undeclared "superdelagates" to overturn the votes of the American people.

Your contribution to the suggestion of overturning the votes of the American people is a disgrace, and we strongly denounce this letter, because even though it is written by people elected as US Representatives, it clearly does not represent the true will of the American people.

    If Hillary Clinton were the strongest candidate to face John McCain, SHE WOULD HAVE BEEN ABLE TO WIN THE MOST DELEGATES. She ran a terrible campaign and is now in debt. I am insulted that you think so little of the voters and our judgment. Look out . . .
