    Hard counts are Obama 43 delegates to Clintons 27 delegates gained tonight.  I am starting to get concerned that wins / losses are being characterized as who is winning each state on the MSM.  Its Delegates folks, DELEGATES!

    Here are some of Chuck Todds delegate projections:

    Arkansas: Clinton 23  Obama  12
    Clinton to win State % handlely, but Obama will still get 12.

    Georgia: Clinton 27  Obama  60
    This would be 10 more delegates than Obama expected to get here.

    Illinois: Clinton ?  Obama  100+ of the 153
    Not any surprise here.

    Oklahoma: Clinton 23  Obama  15
    Only a 7 delegate margin even though Hillary will win the State % handlely.

    Tennessee: Clinton 38  Obama  30
    Again, only a 8 delegate margin even though Hillary will win the State % handlely.

    Also, Todd said that althogh Clinton won the State % in Massachusetts, she may not win the majority of the delegates.  This is why we need to look at delegate count.
