Given how many pledge superdelegates have dumped Hillary due to the wind shift, does any of this really matter?

The Rick Larsen and Adam Smith endorsements stand out to me. Since the two are corporate free traders this might suggest that (like Clinton and despite all the Ohio campaign trail anti NAFTA-rhetoric) Obama has plenty of cred in the corporate free-trade camp... or that the writing is just on the wall, but this seems unlikely as Smith's backing was early on.
