Something to watch

Clinton's "celebratory" speech tonight is going praise her campaign, supporters, and accomplishments, but is she going to continue to try and make a case before the superdelegates?

If that second element is in there, it will be a completely different tone. (And does the press treat her as crazy at that point?)

Also, The Chicago Tribune quotes a source, "at least five to 10 House members would endorse Obama on Tuesday morning, at least 10 senators will endorse him by the end of the day and an additional 10 superdelegates will also endorse him during the day."


  • What would be more impressive is to have some number of "Hillary" superdelegates announce they've switched to Obama. This would not only make Hillary's argument that supers will switch to her en masse at the convention sound bat-shit crazy, it would help in party unification.

    How many Obama supers have switch to Hillary so far? How many former candidates have endorsed or supported Hillary? Yeah. I thought so.

  • Yeah. I don't think you're going to see that because it would have the "kicking her when she's down" appearance, and those are people who are sympathetic to her.

    We are seeing alot of the more oblique, "it's time to choose a nominee" and "we shouldn't go to the convention," but I don't think any of her backers really wants to kick her today.

  • Maxine Waters? I think she switched from Clinton to Obama today, but I'm not 100% sure.
