Obama Count Climbing in Delegates

Update 2/14/08

Obama Extends Delegate Lead
Wednesday, February 13, 2008 7:00 PM

Sen. Barack Obama extended his lead in the delegate race Wednesday, thanks to a few new endorsements and more complete results from Tuesday's primaries.

With about 2,500 delegates awarded, Obama's lead over Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton stood at 55 _ 1,275 to 1,220.

Obama took the lead for the first time Tuesday, benefiting from victories in eight straight contests. He holds a 134-delegate lead among pledged delegates, those won in primaries and caucuses.


Unsure whether the super-delegates included in the figures will later be altered depending on the "popular" vote outcome down the road.

Another factor of course are the Florida and Michigan delegates.

How will they be counted if they are. Will there be a new way to designate them. It will be up to the eventual nominee how to do that, says Todd.
