Superdelegate Tracker

2008 Democratic Convention Watch: On Wednesday, Barack Obama added DNC delegates DNC Pat Waak (CO), DNC Meredith Woods-Smith (OR), and DNC Wayne Kinney (OR). Today, Obama added DNC Gail Rasmussen (OR). Hillary Clinton added DNC Eileen Macoll (WA).

MSNBC’s First Read: Obama picked up the support of West Virginia congressman and superdelegate Alan Mollohan. Obama now actually leads Clinton 4-3 in superdelegate endorsements in a state she won by 41 percentage points. Additionally, the Obama supporters are all elected officials, including Sen. Robert Byrd. Gov. Joe Manchin is the only elected superdelegate not to have endorsed yet.

Clinton got Washington state party vice chair Eileen Macoll, which we reported on earlier. In First Thoughts, we mentioned the Obama pick up of Gail Rasmussen from Oregon.

The NBC NEWS Delegate Counts:
PLEDGED: Obama 1,649 to 1,500
SUPERDELEGATES: Obama 321.5 to 284.5
EDWARDS PL.: Obama 12 to 0
TOTAL: Obama 1,982.5 to 1,783.5
