1. Hillary didn't major in math
she majored in miracles. These numbers, like the states of WA, ID, KS, NE, WI, IL, MO, IA, GA, Al, ME, DE, CT, VA, and MD, don't mean shit to her.

3. It is up to her to decide when to accept defeat.
Today, tomorrow or at the first and only vote of the Convention.

In the meantime, the RNC has far outraised the DNC, as all the Dem money is going to the prolonged Primary.

2. Obama doesn't need cream in his coffee
all he needs is a little half and half.

Specifically 52 percent of the remaining pledged and Supers.

4. what u mean 2025? do the math again its 1815 to win
no fl delegates
no mi delegates lets do some math


4007 total delegates super and elected

2025 to clinch
but wait

4007 total delegates
-210 elected florida delagetes
-28 fl super delegates
-156 elected mi delegates
-25 mi super delegates
_________________

3628 total delagates
divide by 2 and add 1

equals 1815 delegates needed to clinch nomination

see why jobbing the system and changing the rules is so important to one side?

5. 2025 is the updated number.
It would have been 2208, with MI and FL. It is 2025 without them.

9. I like those odds.
Also the number has been adjusted again - it's now 2024 as two were disqualified, as far as I know.

10. Hillary thinks that "the Democratic party deserves to lose unless it nominates her."
That's the point made, and the quote, by Gary Hart in an op-ed on Huffington Post today.

18. The good news is, he's as right as the Fox News Channel.
The bad news is, he's Gary Hart.

11. If Fl and MI's delegates are seated, the number to win becomes 2208
And Obama's Magic Number becomes- 645

And Hillary's Magic Number becomes- 784

The FL and MI delegates MAY get seated, but they will certainly NOT be seated as is. They will either re-vote, or divide proportionally.

Being very generous, giving Hillary 60% of FL and MI, it would reduce the Magic Number's to:

Obama--498

Hillary--564

12. HRC and her supporters don't believe in delegate math
they appear to have majored in praising Republicans, voting for wars, and underhanded tactics.

19. She Can win 60% of Every State (And 64% of Pennsylvania) And Still Not Have Enough
To beat Obama. And if it is the superdelegates who decide this, all hell is going to break loose.
