More overcorrection on NPR. Sen Dodd saying, about Sen Kennedy: "I wish he and Vicky the best..." (ouch).

Then a newscaster saying Barak had won "more than a majority" of pledged delegates. Almost all majorities are "more than a majority" by definition. (Maybe 51 out of 100 people is not not "more than a majority" but exactly a majority, and nothing more?) He meant to say "a majority."
