The AP tally was based on public commitments from delegates as well as more than a dozen private commitments.
Private commitments aren't commitments at all in the political world, and not a whole lot more can be said for public ones.
Now, I'm not saying it's at all likely that Hillary will pull it off, but it's a bit premature to say that Obama has "clinched" anything.

You’re right but everyone knows that by this time tomorrow, Obama will be taking a lot of SPD (Super Politican Delegates) and will easily be over the top.
AP is merely taking the needed unannounced ones to slam it up Shrillary’s arse.
Objective journalism and all, don’t ya know.
That’s irony for you.
