Okay, so I understand that Obama has taken the lead in Super Delegates over Hillary Clinton. According to this article (firstread.msnbc.msn.com...) Obama has 277 delagates and Hillary Clinton has 276.5. I really don't understand then why people are saying that Obama has the lead. Wouldn't that mean they're tied? Or did one delegate give half of his/her's support to Hillary and the other half of Obama? I can't really make sense of it.

Uhh, nm. I just found out that votes for American delegates who live abroad only count as one half.

are the presidents selected by delegates or elected by people? maybe David Icke was right ..when he said " the US presidents are no longer elected they are selected"

That's not true in this case. She cocooned one of her delegates to the ceiling and ate half of it with some regurgitated brine.

The entire superdelegate system is such BS. At least that's one thing the Republicans got right.

At least for the Democratic party, that's true. The Superdelegate system circumvents the will of the voters and is nothing more than election rigging.
