Obama will gain about 14 delegates from Unpledged add-on superdelegates
Edited on Sat Mar-08-08 11:59 AM by TAWS
There are a total of 76 add-on unpledged superdelegates. While unpledged add-on delegates are superdelegates in essence, they differ in the respect that they are current unassigned and selected by their state's convention. In other words, these add-on delegates will very likely vote in line with their state (this will be especially true for caucus states because the winner gets to fill the convention with their supporters). Since Obama has won more states and won most of the caucus states, he will stand to gain more of these add-on delegates than Clinton.

The following link does the math behind it and Obama would win 38 to Clinton's 24 add on delegates based on the states he has won.

Note that if he wins Wyoming today, he will get another add-on superdelegate.

4. No, they have not been included. Obama will pick up 1 extra delegate in each caucus state

2. He keeps racking them up.
Always more than HIllary. When will she accept defeat? This week or after it is handed to her at the Convention?

6. Yep, not only would this add to his lead but it would lower the potential delegates she can get

9. she is starting to come across as a manic depressive
with all these mood swings. I keep thinking of that Family Guy episode where the guy sleeps with Sharon Stone and then she rips her head off to show a monster that eats him-that's how I now see Hillary Clinton

10. Does anyone know how many he is estimated to pick up from NY?
I know he got I think 8 or 9 more from Ca this week. I wish the press would report the truth. Hillary won 2 states, Obama 1 and the tied one this week but Obama won more delegates and is +12 over last week with 4 less states to vote. She is dead.

12. yep
she should do the right thing and get out now while she has a little tiny bit of something called "integrity" left (if she ever had any to begin with!).
