Obama Campaign Considers Idea That Clinton Can Catch Up To Be Lunacy

The Obama campaign is slamming the lunacy of the Clinton campaign in believing they can still move ahead of Obama in delegates won:

“This is a wide, wide lead right now,” Plouffe said on a conference call following Sen. Barack Obama’s blowout win in the Wisconsin primary on Tuesday.

“I am amused when he Clinton campaign continues to say: ‘Well, it’s essentially a tie.’ I mean, that’s just lunacy. We have opened up a big and meaningful pledged delegate lead. They are going to have to win landslides from here on out to erase it.”

To see how far Clinton is falling behind, here’s a run down of estimates from various news organizations as to the current delegate count:

CNN: Obama 1,301, Clinton 1,239.

CNN: Obama 1,140, Clinton 1,005 (Not counting super-delegates).

NBC: Obama 1,168, Clinton 1,1018 (Not counting super-delegates).

ABC: Obama 1,355, Clinton 1,261.

CBS: Obama 1,349, Clinton 1,252.

Associated Press: Obama 1,303, Clinton 1,233.

Washington Post: Obama 1,423, Clinton 1,297.

Clinton will need to win by landslides in the remaining states to catch up to Obama. Making this even more difficult, Obama has received two more union endorsements today. Obama received the endorsement of the Teamsters Union and the International Brotherhood of Boilermakers to add to earlier endorsements from the Service Employees International Union and The United Food and Commercial Workers Union from last week.
