Does Hillary Clinton get super-delegate status 2020? I know the list is generally viewed as "party insiders" but when is it named? Will she be the kind of insider that gets to vote after the pledged delegates?
No, she is not.
In order to qualify as a superdelegate, you must be (in addition to being a Democrat) at least one of:
- A member of either house of the US Congress (including non-voting delegates) [Rule 9.A.3]
- A state governor, territorial governor, or Mayor of Washington DC
- An elected member of the Democratic National Committee [Rule 9.A.1]
- A "distinguished party leader", meaning current or former Presidents, Vice Presidents, Congressional Leaders, and DNC Chairs [Rules 9.A.2 and 9.A.5]
Hillary Clinton is none of these, and so she does not qualify as a superdelegate.
