Obama Gains Superdelegates Surpassing Hillary

Barack Obama

Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama has gained 12 superdelegates, surpassing rival Hillary Clinton. The Democratic race has definitely swung in his direction, much to Clinton’s dismay.

While Hillary prolongs the race, Republican rival John McCain has been gaining ground in the polls. The Democratic party’s attention is splintered, due to Hillary continuing to run a race that the public has shown via their vote, she is not their top choice. I think people are ready for the real race and this sideshow is a distraction.

While she is free to continue the race, she is also free to accept the responsibility for the damage it does to her party.
