Matter of Opinion

Cantwell could switch to Obama

That's what she told the editorial board of the Columbian in Vancouver.

If he has the most delegates and states, then she says he should be the nominee. Barring a catastrophic campaign event, he will almost certainly have the lead when the primary season ends.

Cantwell also said she wouldn't mind if the campaign went into summer as long as it were issue-oriented. Ha! Fat chance.

Meanwhile, Sen. Murray is firmly in Clinton's corner.

If you were a superdelegate, what would be your criteria?

UPDATE: Looks to me as if the Clinton camp has reeled Cantwell back in for now. Her comments in Spokane yesterday sound just like the Clinton talking points.
