Obama has 50% of delegates

After last night's votes from Kentucky and Oregon and the last three days filled with many superdelegate endorsements, Obama has finally reached the mark of 50% of the delegation's votes!

Keep in mind that delegates are not required to vote for than individual they "pledge" (pledged delegates) or "endorse" (super delegates). So, unless one of the remaining candidates chooses to leave the race, we're not through yet! I think it's time to queue up the Yes We Can Song!

Delegates: 1500.5 Clinton, 1657.5 Obama
Superdelegates: 277.5 Clinton, 304.5 Obama
Total Delegates: 1778 Clinton, 1962 Obama

% Total Available: 45.32% Clinton, 50.01% Obama

Democratic Primary in 7 minutes

It's been a while since I've posted a blog and it's been even longer since I've posted a blog about the race for US President. That's mainly because - in my opinion - things are just following the same formula they have for the last couple months. So, nothing is significantly news worthy or sensational.

However, this morning my eyes were drawn back to the race by a short presentation which summarizes the Democratic Primary in 7 minutes. It's both humorous and informative.
