If you're having fun watching the Democratic nomination process down south....

... you simply MUST check out's Delegate Counter.

It let's you put in whatever hypothetical vote percentages for Clinton and Obama in the States between now and June, and shows you how the pledged delegates in those states would likely come out if those vote totals were real.

The bad news for Clinton supporters? According to the counter, if Mrs. Clinton wins EVERY SINGLE state (and Puerto Rico) between now and June 7th by an improbable margin of 60-40 (that's wins EVERY contest 60% to 40%) the pledged delegate count will be:

1613 for Obama
1596 for Clinton

Now there's NO WAY Mrs. Clinton will do that well. No way!!! So her only hope in Hell, it seems to me, is for the superdelegates to decide to give the nomination to the candidate who won fewer pledged delegates in the actual voting.

I just don't see that happening.
