Hillary's 150 Super Delegate Lead Has Evaporated To <40. Funny How Mediawhores Ignore This
Edited on Wed Mar-05-08 11:55 PM by cryingshame
They were certainly compliant in using SD numbers to pad her Delegate count from the start.


See link for updates on Super Delegates from neutral site:

If any Mediawhores have reported specifically on how her SD's have evaporated, please let us know.

2. Assuming that's true...
...what's to prevent it from re-appearing just as miraculously?

4. The 50 that are ready to endorse this week.
That would probably keep it from ever re-appearing.

24. Yep. Assuming the reports are accurate, this will be Obama's coup de grace

If he takes and holds the superdelegate lead, it's all over.

5. They'll stand by Barack Obama through thick and thick!
We all know how faithful they are.

The Philadelphia Inquirer, by the way, has reported on the delegate defections gleefully every day since early February.

--p!

18. Worse yet, according to a rumor posted on politico Obama is about to get 50 undecided SD votes
http://www.politico.com/blogs/bensmith/0308/Obamas_secr...

Mike Allen and I reported earlier this week on the Obama campaign's efforts -- led in the house by George Miller and Anna Eschoo -- to engineer a big bloc of superdelegate endorsements, and the Clinton campaign's efforts to freeze that.

Well, the Columbia Missourian has an intriguing hint on this subject from Rep. Lacy Clay:

U.S. Rep. Lacy Clay, Obamas Missouri co-chairman and pledged Obama superdelegate, said that regardless of the superdelegate mathematics, the campaign is Obamas. Clay said that later this week, Obama will gain the support of 50 undecided Democratic superdelegates.

She (Sen. Clinton) will not make up those numbers, Clay said. This race is over.

19. I'm enjoying this much.
Edited on Thu Mar-06-08 12:12 AM by PseudoIntellect
Hillary's crucial showdown wins on March 4 net her fewer delegates than Obama's victories in WI and HI alone. The delegate lead has essentially not changed so far in March, but the rest of March will heavily favor Obama with new superdelegates and the two state contests. So much for HRC momentum.

23. Yes, and you may be understating it.
I get total 11 pledged delegates gained by Hi on 3/4 (with 13 still not called), and Ob seems to have gained 10 superdelegates since Tuesday morning. So the last two days seem to have decreased Ob's overall lead from 110 to 109. Wow!

(All this according to RCP, linked in an earlier post. They seem to be pretty steady, I'm taking them as accurate.)

35. The majority won't. Especially since Obama will have at least 100 more pledged delegates
Edited on Thu Mar-06-08 12:18 PM by cryingshame
and also since Clinton has started fucking over a fellow Democrat with her filth.

30. The Clinton campaign would argue truth is biased and, therefore, mean to Hillary.

33. Hillary Supporters are too stupid to realize she's LOST her Super Delegates while Obama has gained
there is zero chance she'd win at the Convention via Super Delegates.
