Eliot Spitzer's resignation is also bad news for Hillary Clinton. Spitzer was a superdelegate to the Democratic nominating convention, but only because he was governor. A Democratic National Committee official confirms that when Spitzer resigned, he lost his superdelegate status along with his pledge vote for Senator Clinton.
David Paterson was already a superdelegate and is a Clinton supporter, but with Spitzer gone, the total number of superdelegates drops to 795 and Clinton's superdelegate margin over Barack Obama shrinks by one.
