With the news that Hillary Clinton is trying to get the delegate votes from Michigan and Florida certified again (Surprise! Surprise! Whether the Democratic party would truly not count those votes has always been questionable), the math has been done and it appears that even after the Feb. 5th "Tsunami Tuesday" with 23 states either having their primaries or caucuses, the delegate count won't be high enough to pick the official nominee. So all eyes turn to the super-delegates, who don't have to follow the election results of their state in pledging their support.

On Friday's Countdown, Keith Olbermann and David Shuster look at the history of the super-delegate and how it impacts this race.
