Electoral math

Posted By on Sun, Mar 16, 2008 at 6:29 AM

The NY Times surveys Democratic super delegates and finds that many favor math -- if Obama arrives with more pledged delegates, more state wins and more popular votes, they'll lean toward him.

Of course they will -- and should. That's why I think the contest could play out short of the debacle that many commentators seem so alarmed (secretly happy) about. So, finish the rest of the state primaries. Count Florida and Michigan, somehow. Then call the roll.

A potential monkey wrench is the possibility that Clinton would emerge behind in delegates, but ahead in the popular vote.
