Obama Clinches Nomination

When it comes to the campaign trail, I always wonder how every major US news organization can choose a candidate and come up with countless charts and pretty pictures that all invariably show their lead in the race. To me it’s all hogwash.

Opensecrets shows that when it comes to Banking on Becoming President, all the candidates are going into debt over getting ahead in the race, because they all know that there is no certain lead until the actual vote count–and even then–Floridians can’t be too sure. But, reports show that the Democrat guessing game on who is their nominee is winding down. With Obama only 40 delegates shy of clinching the nomination, Clinton is said to be backing out. Here’s the scoop on the latest news.

For all other speculations, I like to rely on good ol’ Forbes, which has recently published a fantastic photo-op that matches the three candidates with what ordinary people identify as their most negative and positive attributes.
