Delegate update

(CNN) - In Puerto Rico, CNN estimates Hillary Clinton won 38 delegates while Barack Obama won 17 - a net gain of 21 pledged delegates for the New York senator.

Obama's overall delegate lead now stands at 155 - 117 in pledged delegates, and 38 in superdelegates.

The Illinois senator is now 48 delegates short of clinching the Democratic nomination while Clinton is 203 delegates short of clinching the nomination.

There are 31 pledged delegates up for grabs in the remaining two contests (Montana and South Dakota on Tuesday night), and 205 superdelegates remain uncommitted.

    Why does CNN continue to report the delegates including superdelegates? This is erroneous. Please check your facts with the DNC! Superdelegates' votes DO NOT COUNT until the convention, because they can change them at any time until then (three full months away–a lot can happen in three months).

    To Super Delegates,
    It's time to be a hero by saving America, act now and don't be pesuaded by a bogus person. Please broaden your mind and investigate and try to find out who really Barack Obama is. He just persuaded people through his nice tones and poetic words. But be careful you don't know him 20 yrs ago. Just take care and God bless you all!

    THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS DOOMED TO BE SPLITED BECAUSE DNC TRASHED THE PRINCIPLES OF DEMOCRACY. ALL VOTES MUST BE COUNTED AND ACCEPTED WITH THE INTENTION THAT THE VOTER INTENDED. IT WAS REVOLTING TAKING HILLARY’S VOTES TO GIVE THEM TO OBAMA. OBAMA REJECTED MICHIGAN WHEN HE SIGNED AN AFFIDAVIT TO REMOVE HIS NAME FROM THE BALLET.
    DNC PUNISHED THE STATES OF MICHIGAN AND FLORIDA AND LET THE CRIMINALS FREE. THE DNC DIRECTORS OF THOSE STATES ADVANCED THE DATE OF THE PRIMARIES, NOT THE VOTERS.THE DNC DIRECTORS OF THOSE STATES SHOULD HAD BEEN SUSPENDED, FINED OR FIRED, NOT THE VOTERS.
    IF A BLACK MAN WITH 90 % BLACK VOTE, RHETORIC AND THE HELP OF THE MEDIA IS SELECTED AS PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE WE HAVE TWO CHOICES:: DO NO VOTE OR VOTE MAC CANE.

    I WOULD HAVE VOTED AND CAMPAIGNED FOR OBAMA IN 8 YEARS, BUT HE HAS TOO MIUCH AMBITION AND ARROGANCE. HE WILL GO TO HISTORY SPLITTING THE PARTY. COUNT HIS CHANGES!.
