I suspect this statement was aimed at Hillary Clinton, more than those remaining 115 or so supers:

Washington D.C. – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Speaker Nancy
Pelosi, DGA Chairman Joe Manchin and DNC Chairman Howard Dean today
issued the following statement:

“We have come to the end of an exciting primary and caucus process – the
voters have spoken. As the Democratic leaders of the Senate, House of
Representatives, the Governors and the Democratic National Committee we
commend all of the participants of the 2008 primary process, especially
Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, for making this such a
transformational election. Because of the enthusiasm our candidates
have inspired, our party has brought record numbers of voters to the
polls, gained millions of newly registered Democrats and now has
advantages in states many thought were difficult to win. We are
grateful to the millions of Independents and Republicans who have
crossed over to vote for a Democratic candidate for President.

“Democrats must now turn our full attention to the general election. To
that end, we are urging all remaining uncommitted super delegates to
make their decisions known by Friday of this week so that our party can
stand united and begin our march toward reversing the eight years of
failed Bush/McCain policies that have weakened our country.

“We once again congratulate all of the candidates for their leadership
and dedication to providing this country with a New Direction. We look
forward to working with them and with all Democrats to win the White
House, congressional seats and state capitals so we can deliver the
change the American people deserve and demand.”
