Hillary Clinton and Her Loyal Superdelegates

Hillary Clinton's speech at the 2008 Democratic Convention urged the delegates on the floor to support, and vote for, Obama.
"Barack Obama is my candidate. And he must be our president...That is our mission, Democrats. Let's elect Barack Obama and Joe Biden for that future worthy of our great country."

While many state delegates at the convention are taking her word to heart, what is happening with those superdelegate holdouts who will vote for Clinton unless she tells them, specifically, to do otherwise?

WASHINGTON - Hillary Clinton is expected to release her delegates and urge them to vote for Barack Obama...
...

"She is going to strongly encourage everyone to support Obama," said a party official made aware of Clinton's plans.
...

Recent polls shows that the majority of Clinton backers already have moved into the Obama camp, but there are still some rogue holdouts the Clintons hope to convert - or at least silence.

Clinton's former chief strategist Geoff Garin, a pollster by trade, said last week that about 18% of Clinton's supporters say they won't vote for Obama and will back John McCain.

Clinton is set to meet with her pledged delegates and urge them to support Obama, even though she will have her name symbolically in the roll call vote on Thursday.

"She ran a great campaign and she has earned the roll call vote," said a top Obama aide.

Obama Artwork can send Democratic Delegate to the Convention!

That's right.  Misha(Ma'Heo)Houser, a good friend, an amazing democrat and a brilliant artist put forth a breathtaking piece of digital art for Orange County's Artists for Obama.  This was a fundraiser meant to raise money to send local delegates to the convention in Denver.  Both Charlotte and I attended this event Saturday night and the print is even more gorgeous in person.

It's not official. Clinton is NOT releasing Delegates

I thought it was important to set the record straight. Another diary stated that Clinton was releasing her delegates; she's not.

A Clinton spokesman said that Clinton is not technically releasing her delegates -- doing so would cause many of them to be dropped from the slate -- but noted that both Bill Bradley and Howard Dean did not formally release their slates until their conventions. http://marcambinder.theatlantic.com/arch ives/2008/06/clinton_asks_pledged_delega tes.php
