Xtra's Random Prediction, Anti's Take

I couldn't agree more that if the Democratic Presidential nomination comes down to which way the super delegates vote that this is going to end up being a complete mess.

As it stands now (as of 10am today) Obama is leading Clinton in popularly selected pledged delegates 603 to 590, but Clinton is leading in super delegates 193 to Obama’s 106, giving Clinton a total delegate lead of 783 to 709.

If this trend continues and Obama ends up receiving a majority of the popularly selected delegates but Clinton ends up receiving the nomination due to her courting of super delegates I could see a number of people in the Democratic Party screaming afoul, and for good reason.
