Live-blogging MSNBC Keith Oberman 2/12/08: Potomac Primary

Russert: Dems: #1 - not just the win, it's the magnitude of the win; #2 - did anyone reach over into the other's turf? On Repub side: where's the Evangelical vote? If Huckabee can do well in VA, he can move on to TX.

Ron Allen is in Little Rock covering the Huckabee campaign. Huck is pushing McCain right without offending.... [some pundits say

Andrea Mitchell: Hillary way behind in Potomac Primary. They're looking at the numbers, they feel this is defeat. This is not spin.... Looking towards Texas. Chelsea is there now. Firewall. Texas. Stop Obama March momentum...

NBC commentator ----Virginia: who's coming out? Women - 56% of the electorate so far; % of blacks is 29% vs. 63% white; age: youngest and oldest most turnout and is up in both. New voters is up - 35% of voters on Dem side, is very big. Biggest Dem turnout in VA since Lyndon Johnson...

Matthews: New Voters: that helps Obama....


Delegates
Hillary: 954 v Obama: 1025 pledged delegates tonight
1215 Hillary; 1190 Obama superdelegates
Huh? Not sure what they were saying.... Should be a democratic process....

Pat Buchanan: If Obama breaks away he will threaten Clinton base in OH and TX
Katrina Vanden Heuvel (Nation Mag): Obama needs to sharpen his war-economy connection
Eugene Robinson: Don't count out Clinton till the last dog dies.... [yes he really said that! and it's so true.....]
Pat: Impossible that Superdelegates would superimpose their will on the grassroots... Huck should get 35-40%, will be a viable candidate, Repubs need to re-think....
