If Obama does not get nomination on the first ballot ... then anyone can vote for whom they please on the 2nd ballot. http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/2008/president/democratic_delegate_count.html He needs 352 to go over the top ... If say 120 Super Delegates sit out the first vote ... in order to open debate then the crap will hit the fan. Word is many delegates are wondering why, with all the press is Obama going down instead of up in the polls ... Hillary is chomping at the bit. Even with her flaws ... the democrats screwed themselves backing Obama. Hillary has more experience and is closer to the center than Obama is. Is it too late to go with Hillary ... we'll soon see.
