Mathematically It's Over For HRC

The math is simple. Barack Obama had a 160 pledged delegate lead going into last night. Today, that lead is going to be in the same ballpark.
What's changed? We've now gone from the end of the 3rd quarter to midway through the 4th quarter. Time is up. The clock is about to run out.
Hillary Clinton would have to win every state remaining with about 72% of the vote in order to overcome the deficit she faces. Thus far, she has only won two states with margins of 60%, New York and Arkansas.
Obama should easily win Wyoming and Mississippi in the next 6 days. Thus, that 72% number will go up.
The superdelegate lead has also been cut to 45 with 50 supers ready to endorse Obama in the next couple of weeks.
There's nothing left. You can even seat Florida in the non binding, low turnout vote and it won't matter.
This race is over. Will Hillary put country before party and help Barack Obama become President so he can reverse 8 years of Bush or will Hillary sabotage Obama and increase the likelihood of a 3rd Bush term by enabling McBush?
We shall see.
