Democratic Delegate Toy

For any political junkies out there, CNN.com has a pretty cool toy you can play with.  It’s a graph with the remaining states that have not yet held their Democratic primaries.  You can slide the scales around to see how the outcomes in each state would affect the overall delegate count.

In playing with this, I found that even if Clinton crushed Obama 75-25 in all the remaining elections, and also claimed the remaining unpledged superdelegates 59-41, Obama would still be on top by four delegates.  And those are all extremely unlikely scenarios.  I hadn’t realized just how far behind Clinton was!

Anyway, have fun playing with it.  You can find it by clicking here.
