Ever So Close…

With a total of 1957 total delegates pledged and supers Obama only needs 69 more to lock up the nomination as it currently stands. Obama nows leads Clinton by 182 total delegates and thus she needs over 200 total delegates for the nomination but, she has trailed in the race the whole time in pledged delegates. I\’m sure Clinton wishes she could do the month of Febuary over in which she lost 11 straight contests. I do hope the supers continue to come out and pledge their vote for Obama and we can cross the nomination line and begin to come together to beat John McCain in November.
