The Vampierus Lives! Obama Splits Texas. The Best Little Caucus in Texas.

How many pantsuits does Hillary have in her wardrobe? The cases of extra pantsuits must add up to the amount of trunks in the Barnum and Bailey Circus. What is Hilary’s carbon footprint on her travels and luggage the past six months? Let’s start at least start a pantsuit count. I haven’t seen her wear the same ugly, ’70s pantsuit twice. I start the count at 61, her age.

Hillary Pantsuit Count: Day 61

I voted for Obama tonight and helped pick delegates. In our voting district Obama won 7 delegates to Hillary’s 4. Knowing Hillary’s instructions, “take control of the secretary position…” I nominated a nice young woman named CJ, who had an Obama badge on her coat and was sitting at an Obama table at the middle school library.

I also talked a neighbor into being a delegate. The people spoke. We shut down the Clinton machine in our neighborhood anyway.

After all the hype and fawning over the pantsuited presidential candidate, Obama actually won more delegates in Texas. Did you read anything about that in the New York Times, Houston Chronicle or Dallas Morning News?

This was far down a story in today’s WSJ.
On Tuesday, Sen. Clinton won primaries in Texas, Ohio and Rhode Island, while Sen. Obama took Vermont and Texas’s separate caucuses. The Associated Press said Sen. Clinton won at least 185 delegates to Sen. Obama’s 173, for a net gain of just 12 delegates — a total that will shrink as remaining delegates are allocated. Obama campaign manager David Plouffe predicted Sen. Clinton would net between four and 10 delegates, fewer “than we netted out of the state of Idaho.”

The Obama campaign said Sen. Obama emerged from Texas’s unique primary-and-caucus system with at least five more delegates than Sen. Clinton, even though she won the popular vote. That anomaly reflects the party’s rules for allocating delegates proportionate to the candidates’ votes in certain districts.

The fact that Tuesday’s four-state, 370-delegate sweepstakes effectively yielded a draw underscored how difficult it will be for Sen. Clinton to catch Sen. Obama with just over 600 more pledged delegates to be won. That’s why the biggest remaining contest is for superdelegates — or automatic delegates, as the Clinton camp calls them.
