Whoops -- Montana Democratic presidential primary is meaningless, after all

The polls aren't even close to closing in Montana, and the AP has already announced that Obama has clinched the nomination on the strength of superdelegates that have privately told the AP they will vote for Obama.

It just emphasizes what everyone already knew -- unelected superdelegates were going to be the real deciders in the Democratic nomination, not voters. Certainly not voters in California, New York, Ohio, Florida, Texas, Pennsylvania, Michigan, New Jersey, Indiana, Massachusetts, Kentucky, West Virginia...

So the Montana primary is now meaningless, one supposes? Montana Democrats who haven't voted already should probably stay home and mow their lawns?
