The Florida/MIchigan Battle between Hillary and Obama is OVer-- Probably

All Florida delegates are seated with half a vote each.

Michigan delegates are seated with half a vote each.

The deal gives Hillary a net gain of 24 delegates-- 19 from Florida and 5 from Michigan. That's not nearly enough to help her. Most pundits are now saying it's all over for her.

But Harold Ickes, announced, as the vote was about to go down, that Clinton reserved right to go to the credentials meeting to appeal. Could that negate the results of today's discussions and decisions until July?

At the hearing Clinton supporters repeatedly chanted "Denver, Denver." signifying their wish for the fight to continue until the August Democratic convention.

Depending on which source you check, Obama needs 64-68 delegates to take the nomination. There are 86 pledged delegates remaining and 205 superdelegates.

At Dailykos, "hunter" reports, <blockquote>Yesterday, Obama needed 41 delegate votes to clinch the nomination; Clinton needed 244.

Today, Obama needs 64 votes; Clinton needs 240.5.

There are 291 delegates remaining.</blockquote>

Clinton will probably pull 30-35 of the 55 Puerto Rico delegates, leaving Obama with 20-25.

On Tuesday, Obama and Clinton are expected to evenly split <a href="click here 16 pledged delegates. There are four uncommitted delegates who say they are waiting for the results of the primary to make their decision.

South Dakota's primary, also on Tuesday, has 15 pledged delegates up for grabs, where Obama is leading. That suggests that by tuesday, Obama could have 30-45 more delegates, needing 23-38 more superdelegates, out of the 205 remaining.

BUT! Hillary's reservation of her right to take this all the way to Denver could cloud the nomination.
