Nancy Pelosi's weekend warning to superdelegates not to vote differently than those elected in primaries was seconded today by former Colorado Gov. Roy Romer, a superdelegate and former Democratic Party boss.

"The ultimate issue is who has the most delegates," Romer told reporters at a breakfast meeting today. He remains uncommitted, though he had favorable words for Sen. Barack Obama's recent speech on race and Obama's experience as a former state senator. While he said that he's open to a miniprimary in June among Democratic Party superdelegates, he predicted that the remaining primaries will deliver a delegate winner.

"The rest of the primaries are going to give us a decision here. My judgment here is also that the superdelegates are going to follow the results of those delegate counts," he said. "Any decision that goes against the delegate count is a very difficult decision. ... This is a delegate convention; it's like the Electoral College. That's the rules, and you've got to stay faithful to what it is that you agreed to."
