SHARE Sweet: Ickes is calling for superdelegates to “standback.”

NASHVILLE, TENN.–On a conference call Wednesday, Harold Ickes, an adviser for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) is asking for superdelegates who have not taken sides to stay uncommitted.

“This race is going to go right down to the wire,” Ickes said.

The mesage to the superdelegates from Ickes: “Stand back.”

Tuesday’s results mean Clinton stopped the momenteum Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) was using to lock-in superdelegates quickly to get the race over.

Essentially there is probably a freeze now–superdelegates under pressure from the Obama forces–may feel the foot off the brake. For now.
