Pennsylvania Primary Results

So tonight's results are in, and Obama fans are going to have to rethink their presumed victory. Clinton pulled one out of the fires tonight, though not by a large margin. At least, *I* don't consider 55% a large margin. It seems the liberal press does though. Regardless, as the old saying goes, it's not over until it's over. The delegate counts are what ultimately matter, and Obama still has more.

Here are the results:

Hillary Clinton: 55% +52 delegates
Barack Obama: 45% +46 delegates

Delegate Totals to Date

Barack Obama: 1,694
Hillary Clinton: 1,556

I'm betting a lot of people actually forgot this was even going on tonight. I almost did too until I clicked on the news site. It's reached a point where pretty much nobody cares anymore because the eventual nominees are already lock-ins. Yes, I include Obama as a lock-in. Clinton would still need a miracle to win, even if she cleaned up at all the remaining primaries. But, stranger things have happened in American politics, so we'll just have to wait and see.

May 6 has Indiana and North Carolina coming up. Plus four other contests after that. We're in the home stretch now.

Well. I guess that's that then.

I knew it was going on, Yahoo and the other news agencies send me daily reminders about this nonsense for days in advance. ::)
A 10% lead in the polls for a single election when you're behind by roughly 9% in the overall elections doesn't sound like a big deal to me, though I guess it does indicate that the voters are actually paying more attention to what the candidates are saying than certain folk seem to have previously indicated they believed... ;)

If the democrats take this long just for elections, think how long they'll take in doing everything else once they're in office ;)
