Obama has the delegate lead but cannot get to 2,025 needed in the remaining primaries.  If Clinton wins the remaining contests 60/40, the super delegates will enough evidence to justify going with Clinton. 

It doesn't matter. There is no way in hell the Superdelegates are going to pick Clinton after she loses the pledged delegates. It would rip the party in two and these Superdelegates are far more loyal to the party than they are to any one candidate.

Besides, a ton of Superdelegates just don't like the Clintons. There's a reason hundreds of them didn't jump on board back during the "Clinton is inevitable" phase.

And let's not forget Convention Chair and Speaker of the House Pelosi has already declared that the supers shall not overturn the results of who leads in delegates.

Yeah Yeah Dean is DNC Chair, but she has power....he has no real power.  I bet the Beast wishes Bugsy Rendell was DNC Chair again.....he can't be pushed around.
