It’s a debated total.

It includes a state that didn’t have its delegates count.

But we don't. Just as if we went just by height Margo Dydek would have won the WNBA every year.

You mean "would have won MVP". But I don't see any valid justification for the segmentation. It's just a relic. It would be like saying the winner of the basketball game was the team that won the most quarters, not the one that scored the most points.

and Barrack Obama would likely be president now.

And in 2000, Gore would be president, and there may have been no invasion of Iraq.

But, don''t linger long on how much better things would be if all votes counted.

The Democratic party is free to choose their nominee by whatever means they see fit. Ideally it wouldn't be at taxpayer expense, but unfortunately we don't live in an ideal world.
