Hillary Picks Up Minimum of 58 Delegates

After yesterday's primaries in Kentucky and Oregon, Hillary picked up at least 56 pledged delegates. Talk Left also notes that she won almost 150,000 more votes. Obama picked up 43 pledged delegates.

CNN reports today that Hillary also picked up two additional superdelegates. Obama only one.

Now here's the kicker about Obama claiming victory last night:
As a result of last night’s primaries, Obama now has a majority of the 3,253 total pledged delegates, though that has no direct bearing on winning the nomination.
Hmmm, sure looks like the supers didn't receive their special unity memo. It's over for Hillary. Give it up for Obama. Come out, come out supers, wherever you are hiding...
