Delegate Count Scorecard
The Primaries are about electing Delegates to represent candidates in the party conventions - (really?) and after Obama smashed the Hill last night, I thought it would be a good idea to steal CNN's graphics, edit them together to make them 'original' enough to post.
So here's the current count as of today the 27th - this does NOT include Michigan for the Democrats. So look for the leader board to change a couple times soon.
And if you don't see your guy - it would be because that person, while out, had no delegates. So if that person wants to "endorse" another candidate - it's a useless gesture, because there are no delegates to sway. So Biden - Dodd - Gravel - Kucinich - and Richardson all have ZERO delegates to swing around.
Same with "Dunkin" Hunter and Fred Thompson. Zero.
Now - there's a lot of speculation that Huckabee is completely out of money, and Giuliani is one third place in Florida from falling out next. Of course Ron Paul supporters read these numbers and see their guy in first place. Hey, who am I to disagree with that? I'm dyslexic with numbers too. That's why I'm on a boat commenting about politics as if it were some kind of sporting event.
Personally, I don't see the Huck out unless he completely bombs under Giuliani on SuperDuper Tuesday. He could also stick around just to throw his weight around as a delegate holder, of significance. Like I said, this is getting fun now.
