Lame Hangover Wednesday

It's the day after Super Tuesday, also known as Lane Hangover Wednesday as most folks expected a victory...yesterday. Okay, so I made that up.

Where do we stand? Here's the current delegate count.

Hillary Clinton
Pledged: 632
Superdelegates: 193
Total: 825

Barack Obama
Pledged: 626
Superdelegates: 106
Total: 732

John Edwards
Pledged: 26
Superdelegates: 0
Total: 26

As of now, a total of 1,518 delegates have been awarded out of 4,049 maximum delegates.

The magic number, as they say in sports, of delegates needed to win: 2,025

CNN gives us these definitions of pledged delegates and superdelegates.

Pledged delegates: Won by candidates in primaries and caucuses; pledge to support their candidates at the national conventions.

Superdelegates: Democratic officeholders and party officials guaranteed national convention seats; can support the candidate of their choice.
