Nevada

NEVADA….I see that the latest “controversy” in the Democratic race is over who won the Nevada caucuses. Hillary Clinton won the voting race, 51%-45%, but Obama’s folks are trying to claim that what really matters is the national delegate count, which they won 13-12 due to oddities in the way delegates are apportioned.

I say: give it up, folks. Hillary won, and trying to pretend otherwise just makes you look dumb. Nobody’s buying it. On to South Carolina.

But I’ll add one thing: thanks to New Hampshire, no one is making idiotic pronouncements about any single primary contest being decisive anymore. Hillary’s Nevada win is just a Nevada win. Good for her and all that, but it doesn’t mean she has the nomination wrapped up, or even that she’s really noticeably closer to it. That’s progress.
