(CNN) – Barack Obama picked up four more superdelegates Thursday, his campaign announced.
Washington Rep. Jim McDermott, California Rep. Henry Waxman, California Rep. Henry Berman and Communications Workers of America President Larry Cohen will all cast their superdelegate votes for the Illinois senator.
Waxman and Berman both have ties to the Clintons, and many of their prominent supporters in California are supporters of Hillary Clinton.
The CWA said Thursday that Cohen's endorsement is a personal one and does not signal an endorsement by the union, which decided last year that it would not back a candidate. In a Thursday release, the union said that decision would be re-visited at its June convention.
According to CNN's estimate, Obama now has 291 superdelegates to Clinton's 274.
This is the time for Hillary Clinton to leave the race. Anymore delay is an attempt to give an undue advantage to John McCain, because her continued stay in the presidential primary would not only destroy the democratic pary but give a McBash another chance to remain in the white house. So I use this medium to call on all Democrats to put whatever pressure is neccessary on her to step down now!!!.

LOOKS LIKE THE BLIND IS LEADING THE BLIND
As an elected CWA delegate and a person who has heard Mr. Cohen speak in person, it gladens me to hear this. It's time to get past all the "buddy buddy" politics and have the strength to embrace change.
The drip...drip...drip of delegates.
The tick...tick...tick of the campaign calendar
and don't forget..."Ch...Ch...Ch...Changes"!!
I haven't been this energized about politics in America since i sat cheering and clapping the night Bill Clinton won the Presidency oh so many years ago.
(PS Kudos to the Biden straight talk express in addressing the Bushwhacker)
Way to go Obama, way to stay focused despite all of the controversy, keeping you in prayer Mr. President
It's okay, Clinton only needs to win by 100% in ALL of the remaining contests to just barely get the nomination!
This is going better and better...I don't understand why Clinton won't to give up
Obama 08 , 12
Wow, Tim Russert was right on!!!! The dam is breaking...
cnn report the correct numbers, please..
Senator Obama is now at a total of 1,895, total
we know you dont want to go against your queen and king, the clintons, but please report facts.
Let's finish this up–Bush is the gift that keeps on giving. It would be nice to go after McSame/Bush as one unified voice. C'mon SD's–you can't CYA forever.
And the hits just keep on coming. Well done!
Hillary? Anyone seen Hillary? Oh that's right. We're getting all of her press.
Ha ha ha!
Keep 'em comming baby!
LET'S GO DEMOCRATS!!!
UNITE IN 08!!!
TO THE WHITE HOUSE!!!!!!!!!!
we are getting close and closer to the magic number.
we have our nominee and our next President B. Obama. 08
Come pu superdelegates.
Superdelegates, pls shut down this race and concentrate on November. No added value of any significance will be gained by footdragging. Or ya all scared stiff of Bill? Haven't you all paid him and his family enough ?
And, the beat goes on.... Obama 2008!
Go Obama, 08
Hillary has lost all credibility. She should drop out.
That's a total of 180 deligates lead. This is bad, even if I am looking to see now of how I would do in 2012 primary in the rest of the states. By lasting this till late, I am ruining my chances of running in 2012 too, forget about 2008.
SUPER DUPER. I GUESS THE BUSH " APPEASEMENT" STATEMENT HAD A REAL NEGATIVE IMPACT ON OBAMA. THANK YOU MR. WAXMAN, MR. COHEN, MR. BERMAN, AND MR. MCDERMOTT.
What about the Edwards Supers who also announced for Obama?
