Obama campaign claims delegate win in Texas.


"By fighting the primary to a near-draw and earning a resounding victory in the caucus, the people of Texas have moved Barack Obama one step closer to claiming the Democratic nomination for president," said Adrian Saenz.  "Texans in both parties and of all ages sent a clear message that the American people are ready for the kind of change that Barack Obama will bring to Washington, DC as our 44th President."

Because of the close finish, Senator Clinton will likely net only two delegates up-for-grabs in the Texas Primary. Based on a large sample of caucus results in all 31 state senate districts, Senator Obama is projected to post a substantial victory in the Texas caucus and, thereby, net at least seven delegates.  This means that Senator Obama will win at least five more pledged delegates from Texas than Senator Clinton."

Seems pretty close to the truth, according to the latest results from the caucus, which has Obama up about 12% in the caucus, with about 45% reporting.

Why oh why are the caucus results so slow to post, I wonder. I mean, how *COULD* they take so long?  It's not as though they didn't write the tallies down on paper, right? What did they do with the results... recycle them?!  Or are there people -- Hillary's supporters, perhaps -- that are using bureaucratic methods to delay, delay, and delay?!
