According to Obama, Hillary is Winning

The Obama campaign has argued that Super Delegates ought to vote in accordance with the "will" of the people. Really? Then let's run the numbers. Under that metric, who would have a lead in Super Delegates? The Super Delegate total from the states that Hillary has won thus far (including FL and MI) is 418, to Obama's 372. If the MI delegates are split 50/50, Clinton still wins 403.5 to Obama's 386.5. If Super Delegates are counted according to Barack's formula, Hillary wins the nomination. Period.
The numbers are even more impressive after Hillary crushed Obama in West Virginia. WV has 11 Superdelegates. Hillary is now ahead, even if you exclude FL and MI: she leads 374 to Obama's 372.
