Lieberman no longer a superdelegate

Under the Zell Miller Rule, any Democratic superdelegate who endorses a Republican for president loses his status as a superdelegate, since by definition he does not support any of the Democratic candidates. Because of his support for Senator John McCain, Senator Joe Lieberman just lost his status as a superdelegate.

This is a fair punishment for Lieberman for crossing party lines this early in the presidential process, before the Democrats have even chosen a nominee, since he is saying that he supports McCain over ANY Democrat running.
