As her campaign frequently points out, her nearly-300 pledged delegate lead is greater than the less-than-200 delegates she trailed Barack Obama at the same point in 2008. Despite the long odds, Clinton refused to suspend her campaign until every state voted, which is one of the reasons Clinton hasn't publicly called for Sanders to get out.
