Apparently, this must be made perfectly clear: claiming the nomination does not equal being the nominee

Apparently the MSM is rather confused, or perhaps Senator Obama is. MSNBC reports that "superdelegates put Obama over the top."

But the superdelegates cannot put anybody over the top right now. Their pledges mean zilch, zippo, zero in terms of binding them. Superdelegates can commit only by voting at the convention - which has not happened yet, in case anybody has not noticed.

If Senator Obama is claiming the nomination because of the superdelegates, he's counting chickens before they are hatched. A risky business.

Dr Heidi You ROCK!! ... between your site and Taylor's I manage to retain some semblance of sanity.

It'a along road to Denver, but I'm on it and in it until we have a fair and open nomination process.

Keep the faith... again, thank you!

HLF, Here are shades of Bush at Crawford, circa Nov. 2000. Hanging out with Powell and Rice, being photographed 'in council' and just generally acting like he won! The strategy of Sen. Obama seems to be to keep playing the part till the play catches up. Well, Bush got lucky back then. I surely hope the rest of the story doesn't repeat itself.

Please keep us posted as to what you are hearing from campagin sources. We follow your every post! Thanks for reposting that lovely photo. Now Taylor has followed suit. Brava!
