Via CNN: Obama narrows Clinton superdelegate lead to 2

Sen. Hillary Clinton’s superdelegate lead over Sen. Barack Obama was narrowed even more Saturday, according to CNN’s latest delegate estimate.

After some shuffling of the deck (see the story for the specifics), the estimate is that Clinton has 273, with Obama’s count at 271.

There are a total of 796 superdelegate, so 252 remain up for grabs.

Update: the AP has Obama ahead (Obama overtakes lead in superdelegates for first time ):

Obama has endorsements from 276, according to the latest tally by The Associated Press. Clinton has 271.5.

The half, I am guessing, is from Guam.

    1. Last I checked, using CNN’s delgate calculator, Clinton needs 70% of all remaining superdelegates and pledged delegates to win (2025) Obama needs to win 40% of remaining pledged delegates and superdelagates. If you count Florida and Michigan, giving the undecideds in Michigan to Barack Obama, which is fair, because a 40% plus undecided vote in Michigan without Obama even on the ballot is CLEARLY a pro-Obama, anti-Clinton vote, the numbers are then slightly different, but not by much.
      If Sen. Clinton wants to stick it out that’s great, let’s let everyone be heard, but she’d better be careful about negative ads that could hurt Dems in the fall. One of her arguments to carry it forward is that her husband was not the nominee until June. That is because CALIFORNIA used to be in June!!! That is not the case now.
      Unite the party and let’s beat McCain. We can’t afford another 4 years of this generation of “warring, deficit spending, and get in your private lives” Republicans.
