Obama passes Clinton in Superdelegate Count

According to ABC News, Barack Obama has officially surpassed Hillary Clinton in the battle for super delegates:

Sen. Obama, D-Ill., picked up two superdelegates this morning giving him a new metric to tout in addition to his current commanding leads in pledged delegates, popular votes, states won, and money raised.

Rep. Donald Payne, D-N.J., switched his endorsement from Clinton to Obama and Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., endorsed Obama. DeFazio was previously uncommitted.

With these endorsements, Obama has the support of 267 superdelegates and Clinton has 265 superdelegates.

Clinton’s once massive advantage among superdelegates has been dwindling steadily since Super Tuesday, when she was ahead by over 60 superdelegates. Despite several rough weeks on the campaign trail, Obama has maintained momentum in picking up superdelegates and has outpaced Clinton at every marker of this campaign since Super Tuesday -- after the controversial comments of Rev. Wright came out, after Clinton’s big win in Pennsylvania and after the Indiana and North Carolina primaries.
