CNN (http://www.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/05/11/campaign.wrap/index.html) is reporting that Senator Obama today has officially tied Senator Clinton in the superdelegates column. But not just any superdelegate came out in support of the likely nominee; it was the Young Democrats of America's own Crystal Strait. As we reported a few months ago, Crystal, National Commitee Woman for YDA, was rumored to be leaning Hillary despite the overwhelming majority of young people in support of Obama. But as of today, Ms. Strait has pledged her vote to Sen. Obama and stated "listening to how young people voted and caucused around the country, I know this was the right decision."
I for one am very glad that Crystal is following the voice of her constituents and those that elected her - the members of YDA. I truly hope that YDA's remaining two superdelegates will also make the same decision and pledge their support to the candidate that young people all over the nation have come out to support in mass.
