Democratic superdelegates continue a steady march to Barack Obama; it's now widely estimated that he leads Hillary Clinton in superdelegate endorsements.

Monday was another good day for Barack Obama, as he continued a long string of superdelegate pickups, adding four more endorsements.

As I noted in a post on Friday, by the end of last week both ABC News and the New York Times already believed Obama had overtaken Hillary Clinton in the superdelegate count. (Many major organizations keep their own running tallies, which vary from company to company.) Now, it's basically unanimous -- CBS News, NBC News, the Associated Press and Politico all show Obama in the lead.
