Obama Takes Super Delegate Lead

Apparently, Obama has taken the super delegate lead. He previously had the popular vote lead. And he had the elected pledged delegate lead. Now he also has the super delegate lead. All together, it seems like he is just plain in the lead.

WASHINGTON – Barack Obama has overtaken Hillary Rodham Clinton in superdelegate endorsements for the first time, according to The Associated Press calculations.

Obama picked up four superdelegate endorsements, including two from the Virgin Islands who had previously endorsed Clinton. The additions erased Clinton’s once-imposing lead among the party and elected officials who will automatically attend the party’s national convention this summer.
