Obama gains two more superdelegates

Posted: Updated:

STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich. (AP) - Even though Hillary Rodham Clinton is the winner of the latest primary, her front-running rival continues to gain support.

Despite the win in West Virginia, Clinton picks up a net gain of only 12 delegates on Barack Obama. But she's urging Democratic superdelegates to give her a new look, meeting with some of them today in Washington.

Clinton argues that her strong showing among blue-collar, less-well-educated voters would give her the edge in vital swing states over Republican John McCain.

Even so, two more of the superdelegates lined up behind Obama today, including Indiana Congressman Peter Visclosky.

Obama also gets the endorsement of former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volker and three former chairmen of the Securities and Exchange Commission.
