hilary delighted at obama's result

hillary-and-obamaThe end of the first stage of the caucus race is now in sight. Like the Lewis Carroll story, the rules are not that obvious and it seems to finish at the will of the contestants.

I'm not sure what happens next because it sounds as if the grandees of the party can overturn any result they don't like and if necessary there's still a couple of previously defunct State results that could be reactivated.

Its particularly interesting that Florida can again claim special circumstances, although they've moved on from chads this time around.

I'll post this ahead of the result. Obama seems to have most of the cards although I expect Hilary will stay in play somehow or other; there has to be further leverage available. Unless the Americans want to double down and opt for the McCain war developments.
