Several political observers (most recently Karl Rove) in U.S. has calculated that Clinton assumably needs 98% of the votes in the 535 delegations from
the primary elections that remains.
After milions of votes, the nomination-process has lead to victory for Barack Obama.
But Rove has also calculated and drawn the conclusion everyone agrees on: Obama wont get the 2025 delegates needed to win the nomination automaticly.
Therefore they are both dependent on the so called superdelegates - the partys elite - to decide it all.
IF they decide to go with Clinton regardless of Obamas lead in given votes and delegates, the entire nominationprocess could be done meaningless, and
lead to great disorder in the party. Yet this is what the Clinton-campaign is going for, especialy since the superdelegates that haven`t announced who
they support seems unwilling to embrace Obama until the process is done.
A small oppertunity still excists for a dramatic finish.
But why do most people think the nominations are quite even?
Is this way to run a democracy expedient?
