In my column today, I urged uncommitted superdelegates to find a secure, undisclosed location. The bottom line is, no matter how wounded Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaTeaching black children to read is an act of social justice Buttigieg draws fresh scrutiny, attacks in sprint to Iowa The shifting impeachment positions of Jonathan Turley MORE is after Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonYang expands campaign with senior hires for digital operations Top GOP legislator in California leaves party GOP senators request interview with former DNC contractor to probe possible Ukraine ties MORE's victory with core Democratic voters in Ohio and now Pennsylvania, they are stuck with him, barring the unforeseen. If any of you believe the Democratic Party will take the nomination from the pledged-delegate winner (who will likely have more popular votes, too) please write to me; I want to hear from you.

Clinton is raising money at a mad clip, but she is also searching for superdelegate support to build her momentum and create the perception of viability anyway, and if they want to endorse her, they should do so. Anyone still undecided after Clinton's win, or those who just want to declare for Obama, should remain silent.

Why? Because the party needs her voters. Women, seniors, white blue-collar voters, Latinos and Jews who strongly support Clinton need to be assuaged, not enraged.

Sure, the party wants to start fighting John McCain. And they want the bruising Democratic primary to end. But any stampede for Obama, which Clinton voters would perceive as an effort to shortcut the Democratic process, isn't helpful to the party in the long run.

For undecided superdelegates, it’s time to hunker down in the bunker.
