This is great news for the Obama campaign, especially coming after a tough news cycle dealing with the comments his freaky Chicago pastor has made in the past. It's tough to see any legitimate path to the nomination at this point for Hillary. Even if she wins in landslides in every single one of the remaining contests, and the Michigan and Florida delegations are seated in her favor, she still won't catch up to Obama in delegates. The remaining unpledged super delegates WILL NOT go against the popular vote, delegate vote, etc. to cast their lot with Hillary--why would they? Many of them are elected officials themselves and realize that Obama is much less divisive than Hillary in a general election, and they themselves stand to gain more votes with him at the top of the ticket. Barring some Youtube video appearing showing Obama blowing lines of coke up his nose, or shooting up heroin, or having sex with a boy, or something completely nuts like that happening, this nomination is his. Block out all the noise, the Democratic nomination is over.
