"McAuliffe: If Obama Gets Magic Number, Hillary Will Concede" (Updated w/video)

UPDATE: Here's the video from MSNBC (04:51).

Greg Sargent (TPM Election Central):
Did Hillary campaign chair Terry McAuliffe just reveal that Hillary will concede defeat when Obama clinches the magic number of 2,118 delegates?

He certainly appeared to do just that this morning on The Today Show. Here's the exchange...

QUESTION: If Barack Obama reaches that number today or tomorrow do you believe that Sen. Clinton is prepared to concede?

McAULIFFE: Yeah, I think that if Sen. Obama gets the numbers, I think Hillary Clinton will congratulate him, and call him the nominee.

The tell there, I think, is that the questioner asked specifically what she would do if Obama hit the number today or tomorrow. And McAuliffe clearly said, Yes, she'll concede.

We'll see what happens.
Howie P.S.: You can say that again.
