WASHINGTON, DC - May 08: Democratic presidential hopeful Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., walks to the U.S. Capitol with House superdelegates after they emerged from a meeting at the UPS Townhouse, near the House side of Capitol Hill. With him are Rep. Tim Mahoney, D-Fla., Rep. Jim Costa, D-Calif., Rep. Ben Chandler, D-Ky., and Rep. Earl Pomeroy, D-N.D. Obama took his campaign for presidential superdelegate votes to the House floor once inside the Capitol, triggering complaints from some supporters of rival Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y. "I have a question in my mind whether it's kosher, whether it's ethical. I don't think he should be doing this on the House floor. This is the first time I remember him being on our floor," said Grace Napolitano, D-Calif., a staunch Clinton supporter. "It's unusual. He's actively soliciting the votes of superdelegates on the floor," said Alyson Schwartz, D-Pa., another Clinton backer. But other Democrats welcomed Obama's visit. "Where else can you meet superdelegates? I don't have a problem with it," said Majority Whip James E. Clyburn, D-S.C., who is uncommitted..(photo by Scott J. Ferrell/Congressional Quarterly)
