The super-delegate system was set up in response to two primary fiascos; 1972-McGovern; and 1976-Carter. While Carter won the general election he was quickly unpopular and ineffective. 1972 doesn't need description.

I think there's something to be said for people who have political knowledge and experience having something to say. As much as Sanders was more likeable than Clinton the result would have been similar to 1972.
