Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way

Hillary dents Barack's delegate count

On to the next primaries and more scrutiny of each other's every statements.

Sen. Hillary Clinton emerged victorious tonight in the Pennsylvania. The Associated Press, with 98 percent of precincts reporting, showed Clinton to be winning 55 percent of the vote to Sen. Barack Obama's 45 percent. It's not a large enough margin for Clinton to perform any sort of endzone victory dance, but she does nibble into Obama's delegate lead.

The next big ones are Indiana and North Carolina. The duel Dems should split Indiana, but Obama has an advantage in North Carolina lest Sen. John Edwards endorses Clinton.
