Obama Takes Wyoming


As you may know, Barack Obama won the Wyoming caucus yesterday. Obama took 61 percent to Clinton’s 38 percent, and will net seven of Wyoming’s 12 delegates.

The Clinton team has done a masterful job of making states in which Obama is the heavy favorite, like Wyoming, count for virtually nothing in the grand media narrative about momentum. It helps that Obama can win and has won tons and tons of small states, but is having trouble nailing down big ones. In the presidential campaign math that we all operate under, one California or New Jersey or Ohio counts for four or five Wyomings. Whether or not you think that’s a good thing probably depends on what size your home state is.

After a week or two of awful news, Obama desperately needs today’s win and Tuesday’s expected win in Mississippi.
