NY Times Corrects Itself on Nominee Math

The Gray Lady restates its assessment of how soon Obama could proclaim himself the Democratic nominee:

Monday correction: “To truly become the presumptive nominee, however, Mr. Obama would have to win additional support from superdelegates. And Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton’s efforts to have the party recognize results from two disputed contests, in Florida and Michigan, could also affect the status of the delegate race.”

Sunday’s NY Times originally stated that if things go well this week Obama “could actually end up with enough pledged delegates” to proclaim he’s the nominee “without fear of contradiction.”

Clinton strategist Howard Wolfson responds here.
