As of 10 p.m. eastern time, April 22, in Pennsylvania Clinton has 54% of the democratic votes to Obama’s 46%. Not surprsing for her, but nothing like the double-digit spread she got in Ohio and Texas, and not enough to get a lead in the overall delegate total. Obama still has 135 more regular delegates nationally than Clinton.

I am professor of philosophy at Emory University and editor of the Kettering Review. My latest book, Fear of Breakdown: Politics and Psychoanalysis, explores what is behind the upsurge of virulent nationalism and intransigent politics across the world today. My other writings include Democracy and the Political Unconscious; Habermas, Kristeva, and Citizenship; Julia Kristeva; and numerous articles and book chapters. Edited volumes include Standing with the Public: the Humanities and Democratic Practice and a special issue of the philosophy journal Hypatia on feminist engagements in democratic theory. I am also the author of the entry on feminist political philosophy in the online Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy and well into my next book project on democratic public life.View all of Noelle McAfee's posts.
