Delegate Count - 39.5 to Go
This was a big day, folks.
Connecticut State Chair Nancy DiNardo
Virginia DNC member Jerome Wiley Segovia
Louisiana Party Chair Chris Whittington
Michigan DNC member Brenda Lawrence
Michigan DNC member Lu Battaglieri
NY DNC member Irene Stein
Florida DNC member Janee Murphy
Washington DNC member David McDonald
Also, a couple of John Edwards' delegates have been moved into Obama's column.
But the biggest news of the day, superdelegate-wise, was SC Representative Jim Clyburn - the #3 Democrat in the House. He endorsed Obama, and began making his own phone calls to superdelegates on Obama's behalf.
I think that all adds up to the total you see above.
Now, the superdelegate count might all be moot, because there are myriad rumors that Hillary Clinton is winding up her campaign tomorrow. She's scheduled a "major press conference" tomorrow in New York City, to which she's invited many of her big supporters and donors. Will she fold up her tent tomorrow? I won't believe it until she does it.
