Hillary - Put A fork In It!

WaPo reports Rep. James E. Clyburn (D-S.C.), the third-ranking Democrat in Congress, endorsed Barack Obama's presidential bid this morning and said he hoped enough other superdelegates would follow suit today to clinch the nomination for the Illinois senator.

Obama "is elevating the political rhetoric, he's elevating our party," Clyburn, 67, said on NBC's "Today" show. "He is bringing to the process new voters, young voters, elder voters. People who are in thirst of a new vision for our country."

Although precise delegate counts differ, Obama, who would be the first African American nominee from a major party, expects to pick up about 20 pledged delegates during primaries today in Montana and South Dakota. He would need about two dozen more superdelegates to secure the nomination and end his protracted battle against rival Hillary Rodham Clinton.

"Today the [primary] process ends," Clyburn said in the "Today" interview. "And I hope that enough of us will announce our intentions today so that this evening our candidate, our presumptive nominee, can get to 2,118." More HERE
