Cantwell: Let ‘em play it out

Democratic super delegate Maria Cantwell said she’s sticking with Hillary Clinton and waiting for voters in the remaining states before discussing what – if anything – could make her switch.
“I’m not going to make any decisions about anything until all the states have voted,” Cantwell, Washington’s junior senator, said in an interview after a speech to the Downtown Spokane Rotary Club. “We had the process play out here and I think it’s important to let the rest of the states have their say.”
Cantwell endorsed Clinton, a long-time legislative ally, at the end of last year and was at her side when Clinton campaigned in Spokane and other Washington cities before the state’s precinct caucuses.
“I was glad that she came here to Spokane to campaign,” Cantwell said. “I think when it comes to understanding the issues of Washington state, whether it’s Fairchild or high energy prices Spokane has paid, she talked about all of those issues when she was here.”
Are there conditions that would make her switch to Barack Obama?
