Hillary, we’re telling you there’s a chance. But right now—given the delegate count, the popular-vote tally, the failure of Florida and Michigan to secure revotes, the swing of superdelegates toward Obama since Feb. 5, and the growing itch among top Democrats to see this race wrapped up—we’d put your chances today at 12 percent.
