I think Bill Clinton is going to have to do more yelling at the super delegates to persuade them. Here is an interesting read....

NJ Super-Delegates For Clinton May Switch to Obama
by DRStarks

Finally Democrats for Hillary are finally seeing that this long drawn out Blue on Blue battle hasn't been so great for the Party as some pundits want to make us believe.

DRStarks's diary :: ::
Forgive me for the lack of substance on this, I'm still fairly green at this.

WNBC-TV: Trenton,NJ: Some of the superdelegates from New Jersey who have said they will support Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton now suggest they could end up supporting Sen. Barack Obama. The lawmakers suggested they might be willing to change Monday at an event in which New Jersey Sen. Frank Lautenberg announced his intention to run for another term in the U.S. Senate.

I am from the party that believes this long battle is not good for either candidate. Every day that passes gives the GOP and the 527s more ammunition come November. It's time to end this spat already!

Gov. Jon Corzine, another superdelegate who has strongly supported Clinton, also said those factors were the most significant -- suggesting he could switch sides after the end of the primary season.

"The ones that are the most important, in my view, are the popular vote and delegate count," Corzine said.

Another Clinton superdelegate, New Jersey Democratic Party Chair Joe Cryan, said he could see himself switching to Obama.

"If she loses all the other states post-Pennsylvania, certainly we would weigh that," he said.

Although, I'm optimistic about this...I wish these people could see beyond their own noses and think long term. The more Supers stop being cowards and afraid of the blowback from the Clintons, the sooner the Dems could move onto Phase II: Beating McCain. This party does not belong to the Clintons and neither does the White House.

I'm tired of these Supers "waiting" to see. Why not step forward with the rest of the majority and let it be known that you support the choice of the many. Come out, come out, wherever you are!
