I wonder if the guys who own the goog website have done this, or the Obama team have bought the site. Im thinking the former.

Yes, Obama is a goog dude.

Barack Obama speaks in Grand Rapids, Michigan with John Edwards. In yet another major blow for Hillary Clinton, the former Vice Presidential candidate, John Edwards has endorsed Barack Obama for the Presidency.

Obama Hits the Lead in Superdelegates

Barack Obama has hit the lead in superdelegates according to Associated Press, after he picked up more support from delegates from Utah, Ohio and Arizona, and two from the Virgin Islands. The latter two will be a blow for Clinton, as they were previously supporting her.

Obama picked up 9 endorsements on Friday, which has put him at 276 to 271.5 according to Associated Press. Other news organisations have Obama only a few delegates behind Clinton in their counts.

As the next week progresses, expect to see even more pledging for Obama. As it becomes more and more likely that he will secure the nomination, superdelegates wont want to be left behind in this race. They will want to pick a winner, and holding out any longer will not be of any benefit to them.

Since Obama's win in North Carolina last week, and ultra close result in Indiana, Obama has secured an extra 21 superdelegates to Clinton's 2. That is a massive result for Obama.

The next week will be crucial for Clinton - expect to see more and more national Democratic leaders calling for her to throw in the towel. Have no doubt, there will be some serious discussions behind the scenes to stitch up something for Clinton.

While Clinton has said that she will continue until June 3, we are still predicting here that she will withdraw before then. Stay tuned.

It's Nearly Over for Clinton

After Barack Obama's resounding win in North Carolina and a very close result in Indiana, the media pack and close advisors to Hillary Clinton are urging her to pull out of the race, for the sake of the Democratic Party.

The media have now started to take the view that Hillary cant win the nominaation, with Obama surging ahead with pledged delegates, and more superdelegates by the day.

And close advisors and supporters of Hillary Clinton, George McGovern and Dianne Feinstein have both told her that she should quit. McGovern, the Democratic nominee in 1972, said "there comes a time, even in a good vigorous campaign, that you have to start thinking about the general election. Barack seems to have an insurmountable lead."

In a further blow, it has been revealed that over the last month, Hillary lent her own campaign another $6.4 million, bringing her total of lent funds this year to over $12 million.

Hillary appears to want to continue, but over the next few days it will become clear that she has few supporters left in the senior ranks of the Democrats.

Its just a hunch, but we may be seeing an announcement from the Clinton campaign very shortly.

Obama Cleans up In N.C, Close in Indiana

Barack Obama has tonight won the North Carolina Primary convincingly, beating Hillary Clinton by a margin of around 65% to 33%. If those figures stand up as the evening progresses, it will be a crushing blow to the Clinton campaign, who would have hoped to cut into Obama's lead in that state.

Indiana is tight, with early results showing a 55% to 45% split for Clinton. While CBS are calling the Hoosier State for Clinton, those numbers may narrow as the night progresses, particularly with results from areas like Marion County which is heading heavily for Obama.

The end result across both states will actually not lead to any pledged delegate gain for the Clinton campaign. 72 Pledged delegates are up for grabs in Indiana - the best that the Clinton camp could achieve from tonight would be a 4 or 5 vote increase.

However, that gain would easily be wiped out by the North Carolina result for Obama.

The only possible spin from the Hillary Clinton campaign will be that a win in Indiana is still a win, regardless of whether it actually leads to an increase in delegates.

Unfortunately, the massive result in North Carolina for Obama will likely be overlooked.
