Not Yet Ready...
Once again rumors of a flood of superdelegates jumping on the Obamarama wagon were flying and once again were proven WRONG!!!
After all, why should supers declare their choice when everyone is having so much fun gathering names of Dems in every state of the Union.
CQ Politics reports:
Obama leads with 1,842 including 257 superdelegates. Hillary has 1,692 including 271 superdelegates. Now if Florida and Michigan are disenfranchised, Obama could win the nomination with 2,026 delegates. However, if the all-important swing states of Florida and Michigan are included, it would take 2,209 delegates to win.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., made clear Wednesday they do not intend to call for an early end to the contest.
“My belief is the race should continue. People should have an opportunity to vote,” Pelosi said. “As long as a campaign is going on and candidates are in the race, there’s a chance.”
In the meantime, Hillary has one final chance to prove her mettle to supers and show why she is the best candidate to go against McCain.
