Obama Takes Pledged Delegate Lead

While getting his clock cleaned in Kentucky, losing by a 2-1 margin, Barack Obama took to the stage in Des Moines tonight to essentially claim victory for the nomination. Clinton, of course, vows to fight on to the remaining June 3 contests.

CNN: Obama is expected to pick up at least 14 delegates in Kentucky, and by CNN estimates, that will give him 1,627 of the 3,253 pledged delegates at stake in all of primaries and caucuses.

Obama’s top strategist, David Axelrod, said this was an “important milestone,” but not the end of the trail.

    It’s now mathematically impossible for Hillary to win the nomination.
