Super Threshold

According to ABC news, BHO now has more superdelegate endorsements than HRC. By every concievable measure — pledged delegates, superdelegates, popular votes, states won — BHO has now eclipsed HRC.

It’s becoming increasingly unclear why she is pressing on — whatever concession she might get from the Obama campaign or the DNC (retiring her campaign debts for her, clearing the primary field from any viable challengers should she run for Governor of New York in 2010, a cushy ambassadorship for Bill or herself, maybe even — Gods help us all — a Supreme Court appointment) she can get right now. She does not need to press on to South Dakota to get the carrot. It doesn’t matter what she wins from here on out.
