The people who know Hillary Clinton best - her fellow Democrats, colleagues in the Senate, fellow party-insiders - are rejecting Hillary Clinton and flocking to Barack Obama. David Wilhelm - who is a former DNC chairman - will endorse Obama sometime today. Wilhelm is a superdelegate himself. This is a critical sign that HIllary's alleged superdelegate bulwark is rapidly crumbling.

Keep in mind that he is an Illinois Superdelegate, and how the Illinois votes went last week.

I heard a political strategist saying that superdelegates basically will vote for whomever the winner of the popular vote is. So Hillary's current superdelegate lead really does not mean anything because they will switch their votes if Obama becomes the frontrunner.

Don't know if that is true, but it would be hard to imagine Obama winning the delegate count but losing overall because of the "superdelegates".
