As noted earlier today, Obama needs an estimated twenty of so superdelegates to put him over the top this week. CNN reports that many may come from uncommitted Senators this week: Sources: Most uncommitted senators to endorse Obama

Most of the seventeen Democratic senators who have remained uncommitted throughout the primaries will endorse Barack Obama for president this week, CNN has learned.

Sources familiar with discussions between Obama supporters and these senators tell CNN’s Gloria Borger that the senators will wait until after the South Dakota and Montana primaries to announce their support for Obama.

There is a reason that staffers are being summoned to NY and Bill Clinton is saying things like:

“I want to say also, that this may be the last day I’m ever involved in a campaign of this kind,” the former president said at a town hall at the Milbank Visitor Center.

The end is nigh.

  1. Truly, a sad day in America.

  2. Following the South Dakota and Montana primaries, and regardless of their outcomes, the superdelegates are going to come out en masse for Barack Obama. So much so that it will become clear that even if Hillary were to press her Michigan/Florida delegate case at the convention and garner all the delegates from those races that she’d like to, she still wouldn’t be able to wrest the nomination from Obama.

    As the party elders haven’t been able to convince her that her premature coronation of 18 months ago has been withdrawn due to popular demand, they will convince the far more public spirited supers that the time has come to make the nominee clear, so that the national campaign can begin without further delay.

  3. Tal,

    I am curious, why a “sad day for America”? One suspects that it is a sad day for Clinton supporters, but I have to admit I have a hard time seeing why it should be sad in a general sense.
