Obama's Iowa Bump


So, through some arcane process that I don't care to understand, some of John Edwards' Iowa delegates were up for grabs at today's Iowa county conventions.

The result of which was that Barack Obama tacked on another 7 pledged delegates, while Hillary Clinton only nabbed one.

He nets 6 pledged delegates for the afternoon. Meaning that today alone was as big a delegate day for him as March 4 was for her.

To paraphrase Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, Obama's delegate math is the new black.

UPDATE: It looks like an even bigger day for Obama than we first thought:

From an email sent by Obama campaign manager David Plouffe: "Senator Obama netted ten delegates tonight. For comparison purposes, Senator Clinton netted nine delegates in Ohio.'
