The Magic Number

Related to my last post: has added a “Magic Number Tracker” to their sidebar, giving the real view of the election as it stands, including the % of remaining delegates that must be won, by candidate:

…and even if you go with Clinton’s math (including FL and MI):

Imagine, for a second, if the situation was reversed, and Clinton led in both the delegate count and in the popular vote. Would the media still be treating Obama like he was a viable candidate? Of course not.

We’ve got ONE candidate who leads in not only the delegate count, but also the popular vote….and an also-ran who needs to draw blow-out numbers (which she’s never been able to do, even in the states she’s won) to even catch up. Why is the race being covered as “Obama vs. Clinton”, instead of “Obama vs. McCain”…?
