This week we'll see the Kentucky and Oregon primaries. This is the last big group of delegates to be selected, a total of 103 will be chosen by voters.
In Kentucky, Sen. Clinton is leading in the polls with West Virginia-style numbers, somewhere around 62% to 30%. With 51 committed delegates up for grabs, I'm guessing Hillary will garner about 32 delegates to Obama's 19.
In Oregon, Sen. Obama is holding around an 8 to 12 point lead. My prediction is Obama will get 29 to Hillary's 23 delegates.
So, based on my entirely un-scientific guesstimate, Hillary will gather 55 delegates to Barack's 48.
With only Puerto Rico (55 delegates, June 1st) and Montana and South Dakota (31 delegates total, June 3rd), we'll probably see a moderate Hillary advantage on the remaining delegates.
Which leaves us with the following numbers when the primaries are all over and done with Obama at 1986 and Clinton at 1824. Figure in a portion of super delegates who are tending towards Obama, and the numbers after the final primaries will be something like Obama 2050 and Clinton 1900.
This will push Obama over the top.
Of course, we need to see what the DNC Rules & Bylaws committee rules for Michigan and Florida, but even with a full Clinton ruling (where all the votes count as is) Hillary would still be behind Barack in the count.
It's going to be Obama. Let's just work on healing the party and unifying everyone who worked so hard for Hillary. Because we'll need everyone to turn out and work together to defeat another disastrous four years of Republican leadership.
