Maybe not a convention floor-fight?

No protracted, all-the-way-to-the-convention Democratic fight? Based on the (very, very) brief interview posted here, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid does sound awfully confident:
Question: Do you still think the Democratic race can be resolved before the convention?
Reid: Easy.

Q: How is that?
Reid: It will be done.

Q: It just will?
Reid: Yep.

Q: Magically?
Reid: No, it will be done. I had a conversation with Governor Dean (Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean) today. Things are being done.
For what it's worth, Sen. Russ Feingold this morning was equally confident, also in a casual, offhand sort of way, in stating that superdelegates won't decide the nomination. And that's counter to the conventional wisdom, and to the apparent realities of the delegate math. But "things are being done"...!

So, what gives? Are Reid and Feingold just delusional or is there some kind of behind-closed-doors movement afoot among party elders? If I find a third example, it's a trend!

P.S. ... My full story about Feingold's appearance won't be available online until tomorrow for some reason, but a short web preview is here.

UPDATE [3/27 8:33am] ... Here is that full story.
