Hillary Clinton Didn't Win Tuesday

OK, I admit that I have some bias in this, but the facts play themselves out:

  • Going into March 4, Hillary Clinton needed 57% of all delegates to win.
  • The only state she hit the 57% threshold was Rhode Island (60%)
  • Obama ended up getting more delegates in the state of Texas.
  • In fact, Hillary's final gain from Tuesday was 6 delegates.  That's half of what Obama gained in Idaho alone.
  • In the Texas two-step, Obama got 5 more delegates than Hillary.

And, winning 3 out of five contests doesn't give you momentum after your opponent has won 11 straight.  It just stop te negative mo.
