Looking at the Delegates
Posted by: Dale Franks on Sunday, February 10, 2008

Barack Obama has broken Hillary Clinton's lead in the delegate count for the nomination. Or, at least, in one of the delegate counts. Observe:

Barack Obama
Pledged: 908
Superdelegates: 131
Total: 1,039

Hillary Clinton
Pledged: 877
Superdelegates: 223
Total: 1,100

Notice that Hillary Clinton now leads only because of Superdelegates. In terms of actual delegates selected in primaries or caucuses, Obama leads—barely—by 32 delegates.

As we've mentioned, those superdelegates are a potential problem. Because, despite the fact that they are being counted as part of the general delegate count, they aren't really. They don't have to vote for anyone they don't want to. They simply aren't pledged.

It'll be very interesting to see what they do.

After a lot of drama the super delegates will give Hillary the nod if she takes on Obama as VP.

I made that VP prediction a year ago and I’m sticking to it.
