The Clinton Campaign, her real campaign for the 2,025 delegates needed to win as opposed to the scrambling for populist support that we all see on the MSM, is well underway. Sen. Clinton, in another stellar example of her understanding of Realpolitik, has furthered her true campaign for those delegates needs for the Democratic nomination despite Obama’s growing lead in the party’s populist vote during the Democratic Primary race.
According to a LA Times/Bloomberg national poll, Clinton has so far convinced or coerced approximately 50% of the superdelegates to vote for who “they personally support” as opposed to the candidate who won their state’s pledged delegates. Clinton has also managed to gain the support of 52% of the superdelegates for her call to allow delegates from Florida and Michigan to participate in the Democratic National Convention.
Ladies and Gentlemen, the race for the Democratic Nomination is far from over, though the race for the People’s support may well be. It appears that Clinton is willing to concede the popular vote to Obama while she concentrates her efforts and money on directly acquiring the delegates she needs.
