As the last primary voters cast their ballots in South Dakota and Montana, and Illinois Senator Barack Obama awaits more superdelegate supporters, Americans (and international observers likely too) are wondering, “What’s next?” The U.S. news media are trying to figure that out.
Rumors are spreading throughout the Web and cable news channels that, based on information reported by the Associated Press, New York Senator Hillary Clinton will concede Obama has the most delegates, thus “ending her bid to be the nation’s first female president.” Word of the report spread quickly.
But within minutes Clinton campaign manager Terry McAullife said the report was “100 percent incorrect.”
Obama “doesn’t have the [delegate] numbers today, and until someone has the numbers the race goes on,” McAuliffe told CNN.
So what will happen? Many will be looking to answer that question when they tune in to see what Clinton has to say in a speech scheduled for tonight in New York City.
