MyDD :: CBS: Obama Has Delegate Lead, Even Considering Superdelegates:
"Superdelegates: A Wee Reality Check
The Superdelegate story is a tasty media-cooked stew that lacks real sustenance! The superdelegates ALWAYS blow with the wind and follow the national leader. Watch for two things to begin if the HRC machine caqn't win at least ONE of the Chesepeake primaries:
1) Superdelegates who have declared/stated a 'preference', will start to publically waver, or peel away from HRC.
2) The drumbeat for her to drop out will begin, for the sake of unifying the party NOW before the Superdelegate 'issue' (weak as it is) gets more play, or democratic grass roots get more vitriolic.
BOTH these phenomena will increase should she also not win WI or HI. Mark my words. The pressure for her to drop out will begin Wednesday at midnight should she lose all three.
How will her campaign react to this?
