Obama Picks Up 9 Superdelegates

Hillary Rodham Clinton's once-sizeable lead among superdelegates is gone.

Barack Obama has picked up the backing of nine superdelegates,
including New Jersey Congressman Donald Payne, who had been a
Clinton supporter.

Obama won a convincing victory in the North Carolina primary and
lost Indiana narrowly on Tuesday. He has been steadily gaining
strength in the days since.

Clinton today gained a superdelegate, leaving her with 271.5
superdelegates. Obama now has 271. A little more than four months
ago, she led by more than 100.

Payne is one of at least 10 superdelegates who have switched
allegiances from Clinton to Obama. None has publicly switched the
other way.

    I think Clinton should continue fighting for the democratic nomination.
