For two weeks in February, Hillary Clinton's campaign appeared on the brink of falling into an all-too-familiar pattern.After victories March 15 in Florida, Ohio and three other states, aides celebrated at the campaign's Brooklyn headquarters with a boozy, late-night dance party, confident that Clinton had put the nominating fight out of reach for Sanders.On two of those three fronts, Clinton found a winning formula in her primary campaign against Sanders.So Clinton hired the man who built the system that defeated her, delegate guru Jeff Berman.Last summer, Berman began locking down crucial superdelegates for Clinton. At the annual Democratic National Committee meeting in Minneapolis in August, Clinton backers were rewarded for their loyalty with invitations to private briefings from Clinton and top campaign officials.To date, no superdelegates have switched from Clinton to Sanders, according to the AP tally.Even with her campaign on more solid footing, nothing prepared Clinton for the challenge she would face from Sanders.As Clinton closed in on the nomination, her efforts appeared to resonate with her supporters.At least for a few moments Tuesday, Clinton stopped to relish in her milestone moment as the first woman to ever lead a major U.S. political party.
