Another Split Decision

So another pair of states is done. Another set of results is in. Another split decision is called. Yet another long week to go before the next chance for someone to sew up victory. In case you were in a cave, or just in Califonia, there were two more sets of primaries today. Oregon and Kentucky cast their votes and produced yet another draw as the Democrats roll on toward the convention. It's becoming almost comical now with both of them claiming they've won, it's over, and that they have a majority. I guess they also went to schools their policies created because neither of them has the numbers quite yet. Oops. Anyway, the results.

Kentucky Primary - 100% reporting

Hillary Clinton - 65% +37 delegates
Barack Obama - 30% +14 delegates

Oregon Primary - 76% reporting

Barack Obama - 58% +21 delegates
Hillary Clinton - 42% +14 delegates

Delegate Totals to Date

Barack Obama: 1,953
Hilary Clinton: 1,770

Needed to win: 2,025

As a footnote, Ron Paul made an unusually high showing in Oregon's Republican primary. Yes, those are still going on though one wonders why. He took down 15% of the vote there, which is fairly significant even though it made no difference. He still gets no delegates for it.

Next week is the Idaho Republican primary. Gee, I wonder who's going to win there....

Well. I guess that's that then.

Looks like Barak just needs another 72 delegates and the dems will be able to tell Hillary to go back to New York already...

Go Ron! ;) ;D
