OVERTIME….Reuters reports (via email, no link) that the Obama campaign is predicting a dead-even delegate race when primary season is over:
By the time the last primary is held June 7, Obama’s advisers project he will have 1,806 delegates to 1,789 for New York Senator Hillary Clinton, according to a document outlining the scenario that was inadvertently attached to a release on delegate counts from yesterday’s Super Tuesday primaries.
OK, fine. But if they’re going to accidentally attach internal projections to press releases, how about attaching the details too? Inquiring minds want to know which states Obama thinks he can win and which ones he doesn’t.
In any case, I guess this means that superdelegates can now expect the Obama folks to start recruiting them like high school football stars. And wouldn’t you like to see the memo for that game plan?
