What The Hell Is This Crap?

CNN graphic summarizing the delegate counts:


Okay, this is NOT how it should be done. When I wrote below how the party might eventually have to step in, it's predicated on stepping in and supporting the candidate with the most pledged delegates, the most cash on hand, and the strongest chance of defeating McCain in the general. It sure as holy shit doesn't mean giving more superdelegates to the candidate who's weaker on pledged delegates, who's weaker in cash and who's lagging behind McCain in the general.

UPDATE: If you reverse the superdelegate count from the above chart, the picture entirely changes: Clinton 696, Obama 796.
