Distinguished Party Leader Leadership Positions:

Katie Couric: In the meantime, they are campaigning hard for their
particular candidate. Have the candidates themselves called you?

Mitchell: No, nether candidate has called me, but I have gotten calls from representatives on both sides.

Couric: Pretty enthusiastic and assertive calls?

Mitchell: No, I think they were very cordial, logical. They made persuasive cases for their candidate. They applied different standards depending upon the circumstances that they’re in. Each one uses the argument best calculated to lead to support for their candidate. I’ve had a lot of attempts at persuasion. I cast several thousands of votes in the Senate and on every one of them I had people saying 'Yes,' 'No,' 'Yes,' 'No.' So there’s nothing new about this.

Couric: Do you consider yourself a Mainer or a New Yorker now?

Mitchell: It’s an interesting question. When the superdelegate process
first gained attention, Sen. Obama won the Maine caucuses. And so I got quite a number of letters saying that since he won the Maine caucuses, you are obligated to vote for him. Then the Democratic National Committee informed me that because I live in New York, I’ll be a superdelegate from New York. So now I’ve got a bunch of letters making the opposite argument from the Obama camp and the Clinton camp, assuming the argument that Obama camp had previously made. So as I said, the argument depends on where you are and what happened in your state or congressional district.

Couric: But you are a superdelegate from New York?

Mitchell: That’s what I am informed, although the director of the Maine party called me and said they want me to be a superdelegate from Maine! But I don’t know if that’s possible because I am a resident of New York at this time. My kids go to school here.
