The long Democratic road

There’s a thorough analysis at Tapped, the American Prospect’s blog, covering the Democratic primary delegate count. The gist is neither Obama or Clinton is expected to leave Tsunami Tuesday with more than a 10% lead in delegates.

The relatively delegate-light primaries over the rest of February and through March — about 1000 delegates added compared to 1688 awarded February 5 — means a drawn-out struggle for the nomination. And will stoke the fires of all the observers hoping for a brokered convention.
