Newsweek's Fineman: Both Campaigns Believe It's "Virtually Impossible" for Clinton to Win Most Delegates [VIDEO]

Last night, during MSNBC's campaign coverage, Newsweek's Howard Fineman told Keith Olbermann that he's spoken to anonymous sources in both the Clinton and Obama campaigns and apparently both believe that it's "virtually impossible" for Hillary to beat Obama in pledged delegates (especially after last night's three blowout victories for Obama in DC, Maryland and Virginia). Which means, the best scenario Clinton can hope for is to keep it close and hope that her superdelegate advantage makes the difference. I think that's a very risky strategy. And as we reported yesterday, Democratic superdelegates definitely do not want to appear to be reversing the decision of the primary voters, whatever that may be.
