Woo Hoo!

It was just a matter of time, but Obama finally has the lead in superdelegates. What's better, Oregon's own Peter DeFazio's endorsement is the one that put him over the top. Obamarific!
Obama Now Takes The Lead in Superdelegates Too
ABC News' Karen Travers Reports: For the first time this campaign season, Barack Obama has surpassed Hillary Clinton's support among superdelegates, according to the ABC News delegate estimate.

Sen. Obama, D-Ill., picked up two superdelegates this morning giving him a new metric to tout in addition to his current commanding leads in pledged delegates, popular votes, states won, and money raised.

Rep. Donald Payne, D-N.J., switched his endorsement from Clinton to Obama and Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., endorsed Obama. DeFazio was previously uncommitted.
Update: He's now up by 7 superdelegates. Go here for details.

Update II: Huffington Post and TPM are reporting 8 and I've read 9 somewhere else, but neither source listed each one, so for now, I'm treating it as unverified and not linking to either.
