  •  So Hillary needs 120 delegates and expects 7? (2+ / 0-)

    So basically it's absolutely clear: The Clinton campaign has given up on wining the elected delegates, and have resorted to making an "argument" to the superdelegates that they should nominate her even if the people voted for Obama.

    I wonder how well that's going to work for her.

    •  yes, she has two conflicting arguments going (2+ / 0-)

      (who'da thunk?!?)

      1. Michigan and Florida delegates must be seated to preserve the integrity of the primary process and to avoid disenfranchising all these wonderful voters.
      1. Super-delegates should be able to vote their minds, and are not bound to adhere to the voters' wishes.

      •  The superdelegates... (4+ / 0-)

        Have been slowly leaking away from her over the past few weeks.  Over here:

        they show Clinton with a lead of 47 in superdelegates.  A few weeks ago, she was ahead by 97 or so.  At the moment, I am not that worried about the superdelegates handing it all over to Clinton..

      •  Ok let's look at those two argumenets (0+ / 0-)
        1. MI and FL will not count, not now, not ever.  His name wasn't even on the ballot.  If it was going to count what is the DNC waiting for?

        2.) Supers have already begun their mass exodus to Obama since Super Tuesday.  

        •  And the late breaking superdelegates... (0+ / 0-)

          ... one could surmise will tend towards Obama, too.  Somebody's gotta put Hillary out of her misery.  (So to speak...)
