Who are the California superdelegates?

Will the Democratic “superdelegates” — the members of Congress and party apparatchiks — end up determining whether it’s Barack Obama or Hillary Clinton who gets the nomination this year? Quite possibly, if neither gets enough pledged delegates from the state primaries and caucuses (a scenario that seems more and more likely). In California, we’ve got 66 superdelegates, and as I count ’em, I see 26 already saying they’ll support Clinton, 11 for Obama and 29 who haven’t said anything yet, although any could change their mind at any time.

(Sorry it took me so long to get this list up — other bloggers beat me to it — but finding links for all these DNC members was time consuming!)
