24. From an article in the Guardian from April 2016 . . .

"There are three ways to become a superdelegate. The first is to be elected to public office as a Democratic governor, senator or congressman. The second is to become one of 438 members of the Democratic National Committee as a loyal party activist or powerbroker. The third and most difficult is to become a superdelegate for life by having served as president, vice-president, DNC chair or Democratic leader in either chamber of the US Congress." (See https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2016/apr/19/democratic-party-superdelegates-history-rules-changes ),

Gephardt was a Congressman for Missouri from 1977 to 2005. He served as House Majority Leader from 1989 to 1995 and Minority Leader from 1995 to 2003.
