Democrat Rules Committee to Determine Clinton Fate Fair or Foul

And could net her 47 delegates...

Well, that may be the case, but by then, what if Barack Obama has the specified amount of 2025 overall delegates by May 31, 2008. Won't he be declared the Democrat Party nominee for President? Just like any other Party which holds elections before the national convention?

That's not to say Clinton shouldn't continue on into the the August convention whatever the rules committee determines, or whether Obama receives 2025.

But she wouldn't be able to claim Obama is unelectable, because he would have just been elected by the combination of committed delegates and superdelegates.

Mrs. Clinton’s campaign wants the delegates apportioned between her and Mr. Obama based on popular votes. That would give her a net increase of 47 delegates.
