"OBAMA HAS WON MAJORITY OF 'PLEDGED' DELEGATES"
It's still going to come down the a few people sitting in a smoke filled room despite all this democracy though?
Is it still realistic for Hillary to get a greater share of the vote and argue it on that basis?
and Obama didn't stand and Hilary did or something weird like that?
Obama wasn't on the ballot in Michigan but was in Florida, Clinton was on both, neither of them campaigned in either state.
It was in the bag before Indiana, just the media didn't want to admit it yet.
s'why my excitement lasted about 2 seconds
well so far he's got the majority of superdelegates too, but god knows Clinton's not going to want to bow out gracefully, so who knows if she'll consider keeping on keeping on. hofo knows, that's who. has the best idea of anyone on here, anyway. i'm only second in American politics knowledge, so we'll just wait for him to pop along to give you a super polinerd answer.
I think nerdiness is a positive. (I think you're cool for thinking the primaries are cool! Shhhh!)
but then lost the will to live about 3 months ago.
Realistically, that's all I can hope for. But I'll hope like hell for it.
Or they decide to play it by the only two states that aren't ridiculous. Maybe that one actually.
