Will it be a brokered convention

Thinking of the states to come: WA, NE, LA, Maine, VA, MD, etc., it seems to me more results similar to supertuesday are to come where it is close and the delegates are split.
But I've been thinking about it: Right now Clinton has 1012 and Obama 933 (see www.realpolitics2008.com). Clinton needs another ONE THOUSAND delegates to win. So does Obama. Where in the h-e-double-hockey-sticks do they intend to find an additional 1,000 each?
I honestly do not see a sweep in either direction. PA and TX are the last really delegate-rich states. But PA and TX only equal 400+ all together. So even if one or the other got all of PA and TX, they would still split the rest down the middle and never reach 2025. I honestly feel that without Florida, we will inevitably go to a brokered convention. Is my reasoning off?
