Obama Reaching Winning Delegate Count

Senator Barrack Obama is only 23 short of the required 2,025 pledged delegate votes as Oregon and Kentucky go to polls today. He is also ahead in super delegates by 15. He would be heading to Iowa where he took his first "Primary baby steps" months ago prior to triggering a stampede winning 14 states in a row, and then to a much needed rest in Florida.

Senator Hillary Clinton is expected to win Kentucky handily even though the result would be immaterial at this stage, she cannot overtake Obama. George Bush’s “appeasing the enemy” speech before Israel Knesset received a thumping reprisal immediately from Democratic presidential front-runner Barrack Obama last week. Republican presumptive nominee John McCain joined in the fray and traded furious barbs.
