    CNN (Clinton News Network) declares Clinton nominee. :p

    What a surprise.

    Newsflash:
    Superdelegates are neither bound nor pledged.

    Get ready for a contested convention.

    That'd be interesting if it actually happened.

    They are pledged by word of honor and political reputation. You are thinking legally.

    Tell that to the superdelegates who changed their pledge on 2008 ...

    Fact is:
    They vote at the convention and not beforehand.

    Will a few change their mind? Sure. Will that number be in any way statistically significant? Absolutely not.

    Could be a few, could be all of them.

    We'll see at the convention.

    Though will Hillary pulling ahead with the popular vote, even if it is just by the skin of her teeth, the chances they'll swing in her favor come the convention are pretty likely by this point.

    Bernie's last chance is California. If he wins there, which right is looking like a solid "eh...it's a possibility", we'll probably see a contested convention. But if he loses, his race is over.

    We both know that there is 0 real possibility of that happening.
    Hillary is the nominee.

    If Clinton wins 50% of delegates tomorrow, she will have 2237 Pledged. She would only need 146 super delegates. There is absolutely no way over 400 super delegates would turn on her.

    That's true.

    That's what Bernie gets for running a "positive campaign".

    Then Hitlary has to take on Trump.
    Welcome to the gutter!

    Regardless who wins, Trump or Clinton. I am willing to bet everything that neither of them will have a second term.

    That's ok, 4 years is just enough time for Hillary to tilt SCOTUS to the left for decades to come! And honestly, this entire election is about the future of SCOTUS.

    Those risible lines in the sand continue to retreat. Now there's the admitted possibility of a Trump presidency, oh, but for one term.

    You are not on Jeopardy. You should not phrase statements as questions. It's more of your drivel as I expected.

    All superdelegates will be switching to Bernie Sanders. Hillary Clinton will be indicted.

    Hillary Rodham Clinton has committed numerous felonies, these include: illegally storing Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information material and the even higher classified subset Top Secret/Special Access Program material on her unprotected private server, plus ordering backups be made onto other unprotected non-USG servers by private businesses with no Top Secret clearances to handle classified material. Hillary Clinton, illegally possessing, storing and copying TS/SCI and TS/SAP outside secure SCIFs/SAPFs. Hillary’s f-d! Hillary Clinton signed ironclad NDAs with the United States Government, promising under threat of prosecution, to PROTECT and SAFEGUARD classified material – marked or unmarked – and was given official indoctrinations in identifying and handling unmarked classified material at the Confidential, Secret and Top Secret levels. So Hillary’s ‘it was unmarked’ excuse is thus legally irrelevant and means nothing. For the TS/SCI and TS/SAP alone, Hillary Clinton will be indicted. There is no way that the government can not indict her. Hillary Clinton’s additional server-related crimes, that we know of, include: Violating the Federal Records Act, through the illegal destruction of work-related emails which were federal records owned by the United States Government, in her self-directed 30,000+ “personal” emails purge, 18 U.S.C. § 2071 (b), clearly states that this destruction of records automatically for life disqualifies Hillary Clinton from holding any public office including POTUS, and, Hillary sent and forwarded multiple emails with unredacted, classified identities of CIA agents, an extremely serious espionage-level felony. Handcuffs are coming. Guaranteed.

    Officially no, but Clinton will have the support to win on the first ballot. The convention will be the publicity show they normally are which will also confirm Clinton as the nominee just like we all now know.

    You mean tilt them for the socially left corporatists, which is almost as bad as the conservative corporatists.

    Hilly Clinton: A corporatist you can count on.

    Wow, even the DNC itself told CNN directly they should not be including super delegates.

    In all probability, you're right. But, if someone told me 10 years ago that I would want to vote for a self-professed socialist - especially that kooky Bernie Sanders from Vermont - if have called them insane. And yet, here I hopefully stand.
