When the topic comes up over dinner with your politically-minded friends, do you quickly change the subject to your undying love for fondue? Does the whole thing make you feel like a complete and total dumbass who doesn't even deserve to participate in the political process?

You can just head over to Logo's Visible Vote blog, where writer Jennifer Vanasco has penned a nice overview of who these delegates are, why they have such a role, and what makes them so damn super in the firt place. Check it out:

Now next time someone says to you the words "Super Delegates," you'll never again give the embarrassing answer, "I'll have the soup, thanks."
