So, two months ago, playing with Slate‘s delegate calculator, I guessed that Obama would end up with 1677 delegates (thus needing 348 superdelegates).

And today the default settings give Obama 1701 delegates (so he needs 324 superdelegates).

This isn’t because I’m a great pundit… it’s because the numbers were pretty much in two months ago.  It looked bad for Hillary.  And pretty much every state has gone the way anyone with a learner’s pundit permit guessed.  Yet it’s only now that the media seem to be stating openly that Hillary’s history.

At this point Hillary’s playbook must look like that S. Harris cartoon with the scientist staring at a blackboard with a bunch of equations on two sides, and in between “… and then a miracle occurs…”
