Quotation from St Louis Examiner, Feb 11, 2008: "Brooks, a psychologist, decided to back Clinton well before the Iowa caucuses and said he has no intention of changing his position, despite the request of several Obama surrogates who have prodded him since the primary. [Brooks later called this a "mischaracterization," since he has not really been contacted by anyone from Senator Obama's campaign.] Also said, "The reason we have automatic delegates is that the elected party leaders have a base of knowledge about the body politic," Brooks said. "The purpose of that is to have that stabilizing force. It wouldn't have mattered whether Clinton or Obama had one. I feel that my vote is an independent vote and it's designed to be that way."
Brooks is quoted in an article in the Joplin News-Leader (Feb 8, 2008) as saying that SuperDelegates are free to vote for whomever they choose and can change their mind at any time,and that he supports Clinton but could change his vote if it appeared that Obama was going to win the nomination. [In an interview February 23 he denied saying "If Obama appeared to be going to win the nomination" in this interview with the News-Leader.] "My commitment to Clinton is not an obligation as it is with elected delegates.
