And in Washington... a rout?!

This collection of firsthand caucus accounts from the Seattle Times certainly seems to indicate that Hillary Clinton is not having a good day there.

OLYMPIA -- 3:07 p.m. . . . This is not the official count but there were approximately 15 delegates for Obama, 5/6 for Clinton and 1 undecided.

RAINIER BEACH -- 2:52 p.m. "Final delegate count. . . total eight delegates for our precinct. Seven obama. One Clinton. "9 citizens have spoken individually for obama. No one has spoken for Clinton here. " 

TACOMA -- 2:51 p.m. ". . .The party official here estimated that there were at least 1,500 voters rather than the 500 they had anticipated. . . . There were dozens of Hillary supporters handing out stickers at the entrance, but it didn't seem like many people were taking them. . .. It quickly became clear. . .. that there were significantly more supporters of Obama than Clinton. At my precinct, Obama had 34 votes to Clinton's 22. As I left the caucus, the building erupted with chants of 'O-ba-ma, O-ba-ma!' "

SEATTLE -- 2:44 p.m. Reporting from Stevens Elementary Democratic Caucus, Precinct 2029: ''1:05PM This place is packed. .  . Precinct will get 12 delegates total. . . 8 for obama 3 clinton 1 uncommitted.

LAKE FOREST PARK -- 1 p.m. . . . a rough sampling indicates there are already over 250 people here in the gym, and there is a line out the door to get in.. . there is no evidence of Clinton supporters at all that I can see.
