The Big Story You Won't Read Today - Obama Wins Texas  
Buried deep in the midst of the lead article on CNN.com all about how Barack Obama won a state that everyone expected him to win in the most racially polarized contest yet was this little morsel of information:

Obama also finished first in the Texas Democratic caucuses. The caucuses were held last week, but the race was not called until Tuesday night.

Obama will get more delegates out of the state than Clinton, who won the state's primary.

Someone should ask Bill Clinton if Hillary is ready to throw in the towel, considering that she DIDN'T win both Texas and Ohio, something he said she had to accomplish in order to be the nominee.

This means that after Mississippi, Hillary has only gained one delegate against him from all of her much-celebrated wins on March 4th. And guess who is losing a superdelegate if New York Governor Eliot Spitzer resigns?

I suppose this is not unprecedented territory for the media, however. Considering how much attention was paid to Mike Huckabee when it was more than obvious that he didn't have a chance, I expect we'll have to put up with the illusion of a much tighter contest for quite some time.

What we really need is someone keeping them honest...
