When is Clinton going to talk an Obama superdelegate into switching?
This is the million dollar question! Who wants to wait here with me?


http://firstread.msnbc.msn.com /

"*** Just asking: But when is Clinton going to talk an Obama superdelegate into switching? Do they have a few in their pocket for May 7 if they somehow sweep Tuesdays contests? For now, it seems it's Obama who continues to have more lure to superdelegates and continues to find the occasional Clinton switcher. The addition of Andrew to Obama's fold is a big deal because of his title and because of the fact Bill Clinton appointed him to the job in the '90s. But it's what Andrew said that could have resonance: "I am convinced that the primary process has devolved to the point that it's now bad for the Democratic Party. Does Andrew become a Clinton superdelegate whip at this point?"


(cut)

"The New York Times has a piece today that claims she needs a big win in Indiana, not just a narrow one. We'll see if that's a fair expectations bar, but one thing's for sure: IT DOES SEEM AS IF THE EXPECTATIONS GAME IS PLAYING IN OBAMA'S FAVOR DESPITE THE BAD CLIMATE FOR HIM RIGHT NOW." (emphasis added by powergirl)

1. I just don't see the buyer's remorse on the Obama side.

I suspect that once Obama gets his hopey claws into someone, they stay hopified.

7. Probably isn't going to happen
People are pretty happy once they leave the dark side of the party.
