Another Superdelegate for Obama Dayton Ohio Mayor Rhine McLin endorses Obama

This should raise some eyebrows (and cut against the wrongheaded presumption that Clintons symbolic victories last night will stem the flow of superdelegates to Obama)

Dayton, Ohio Mayor (and superdelegate) Rhine McLin today endorsed Obama:

Mirroring the unofficial results of the Democratic Presidential race in Montgomery County, Dayton Mayor Rhine McLin today announced her endorsement of Illinois Senator Barack Obama.

Despite a win statewide by New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, in Montgomery County, the results told a different tale with Obama beating Clinton by over 10,000 votes.

In a morning interview on CNN, McLin said the decision of Dayton and Montgomery County voters would determine how she used her superdelegate vote.


(Is there anybody else out there that senses that the fact that the Clinton campaign didnt go quietly into the night last night may push more superdelegates out of the closet to declare for her rival?)
