Finally, Someone Counted the Electoral College Votes

"Hilary Clinton has won states with about 260 electoral votes and Barack Obama has won states with about 190," Rendell said. "We decide the president not by the popular vote. We decide it by the Electoral College. The traditional role of superdelegates is to determine who's going to be our strongest candidate."

So, because of cockamamie rules of the DNC, Obama wins a lot of pissant states and has more delegates than Hillary. What really should count is the projection of Electoral College votes in the General Election and that's where Hillary has Obama beaten by a country mile: 260 to 190, or 58% vs. 42%.

If the DNC and the superdelegates want to win in November, they must choose Hillary.
