I would like Obama to get at least 1 of the add-ons tomorrow, or at least roll out one more SD than Clinton tomorrow to keep the current gap between them equal or shrinking.

I'm surprised the media isn't commenting more an Obama's huge upward SD trend that appears he'll soon be taking the lead in that category as well. After that, I can't see Clinton having much reason left to remain in.

Does Joe Andrew put Obama at 243 or did you update the post to include him?

The latest numbers are always in the left sidebar trackers. We update those before any others.

Obama is currently at 243

I just went to 3 web sites that explains it all. I feel like such a fool. Thought that "Change" and no more "politics as usual" and "transparency" were going to be good for us. Once again, we've bought and supported another phony political sandwich.

Kathy NW Indiana,

And your point is???

Two of your links are broken, one shows campaign contributions from either the Clinton or Obama campaigns to other Democratic nominees for elections.

The 'bikeresults.com' site is the only link that works, and the information presented doesn't make much sense out of context.

Just what are you attempting to tell us with your cryptic "I just went to 3 web sites that explains it all. I feel like such a fool."
