Two More NC Superdelegates Line Up Behind Obama

Two superdelegates from North Carolina have announced their support for Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

Reps. Mel Watt and David Price said Wednesday they are backing the Illinois senator.

Six of North Carolina's 17 superdelegates have now endorsed Obama. Only one of the state's superdelegates is backing Hillary Rodham Clinton. Many of the rest have said they likely won't endorse a candidate until after the state's May 6 primary.

Neither Obama or Clinton will be able to clinch the 2,025 delegates needed to win the nomination without support from the party's nearly 800 superdelegates. That group of elected officials and party insiders can vote for whichever candidate they want at the party's convention in Denver.

    I can't believe people are supporting this guy - a freshman Senator with no experience at anything, the most liberal candidate in history, and a man with an agenda to add additional tax burdens on the working citizens of this country. And apparantly he can say and do no wrong. Are people really so awe stricken by his eloquence that they can't see?? I don't know about anyone else. But, any NC leader out there that supports this guy WILL NOT get my vote!

    I haven't seen any candidate who is too good to be true because they all have their flaws, which many of them have been pointed out in this election. These candidates are just ordinary people with extraordinary talents and an opportunity to make a difference in this country and furthermore, the world.
