Obama Campaign Confirms 50 More Super Delegates Waiting in the Wings

Also, currently both Democratic candidates lead John McCain in a head to head race.
The rumoured delegate bounce looks to be true.
Rep. Lacy Clay (D-MO), Sen. Barack Obama's Missouri co-chairman and pledged Obama superdelegate, said Obama will gain the support of 50 undecided Democratic superdelegates later this week, according to the Columbia Missourian.
Said Clay: "She (Sen. Clinton) will not make up those numbers. This race is over."
Former NBC News anchor Tom Brokaw first reported yesterday that Obama had about 50 secretly committed superdelegates. However, The Hotline quotes an unnamed Obama campaign aide who says the report is "wrong."
Reported elsewhere, but always nice to repeat-
Both Democrats Lead McCain
A new Washington Post/ABC News poll shows both Democratic presidential candidates ahead of Sen. John McCain in general election match ups.
Sen. Barack Obama leads McCain, 52% to 40%, while Sen. Hillary Clinton is ahead, 50% to 44%.
