It's a tie ....

Super Tuesday is over and the winner is ... who knows. On Tuesday Hillary won California with 52% of the vote compared to 42% for Obama (see post below). Because California, like most states, is not a winner take all system, each candidate will get a number of delegates based the percent of votes they get. The final delegate count is Obama 861 to Hillary's 855, with 2,025 needed to win the election. It seems that the nomination will not be resolved by the time the convention comes around. This reminds me of the that one West Wing episode where the democratic nominee was chosen in a free for all during the convention. I miss that show, but real life may prove to be just as exciting.
