New Delegate Math based on Today's RBC Meeting!

Following the Democratic Party Rules and Bylaws Committee Meeting today, I have updated the delegate math based on their decisions. The new number of delegates needed to win the nomination is 2117. Obama has 2052 in the bank, and he is guaranteed a bare minimum of 32 pledged delegates based on the allocation rules of the last 3 primaries, plus 8 more superdelegates that have said they will endorse him in June. So that leaves only 25 additional delegates for Obama to win. That can come from other superdelegates, from doing better than the bare minimum in PR, MT and SD, and from the 13.5 Edwards delegates.


I predict Obama will bring it all home on Tuesday night in Montana. Then it's on to the general.

Unity Day with Thom Hartmann

Here's a 5-minute highlight reel from the Unity Day event on Thursday. Neither Laura Spanjian nor I get to talk on this one. It's mostly Thom Hartmann speaking, and he has a lot good to say.

At the end, it does say to "watch this space" for a complete audio podcast and more exclusive video coming soon. I'll bring that to you when it shows up at the Green 960 site.
