61. A win is a win, even if only by one vote.
This whole argument of "it's so close!" doesn't work for me. A win is a win is a win. Elections can still be decided in this country by one vote. That's democracy for you.

So by saying Barack is only winning by 5% of the delegates means HE IS STILL WINNING. Even if he only ends up with ONE more delegate than Hillary, that is enough to win. And the Hillary supporters need to accept that.

"Close" only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades as my old grand-pappy used to say.
