Could it be? Is it over? (Updated)

Updated to correct an error in popular vote count.

I’ve been watching election coverage on MSNBC since Tuesday evening, and now, at 1:30am Eastern, it looks like the primary may actually be over.

MSNBC is reporting, with 99% of the votes counted, that Clinton has won Indiana, but by less than 2%, or about 22,000 votes. Obama won North Carolina by 15%. According to Chuck Todd, Obama gained 13 more delegates and enough of the popular vote to put him 700,000 votes over Clinton tonight, so even if Michigan and Florida are seated as is, Obama still leads in pledged delegates by about 100 and the popular vote by about 150,000. This would seem to be a strong argument for undeclared super delegates to endorse Obama.

Huffington Post is declaring Obama the Presumptive Nominee.

Could it be? Did we win? Someone pinch me!

    Is it just me, or is Hillary Clinton DELUSIONAL? I mean, come on; suck it up – you blew it despite your best efforts with Jeremiah Wright!

    Apparently she is. I hoped she would change her tone, take her WV win and exit gracefully, but she’s back to race baiting.
