"There's where the birds warble sweet in the springwinter-time."

Two interesting things to notice about the Virginia results:

1. With 95% of the votes counted, Obama's total beats Clinton's plus McCain's.

2. Look at the geographic correlation between counties voting for Clinton and counties voting for Huckabee (apologies to the color-blind readers):

The data and images are from the NYT -- go have a look -- their original map has nice rollover features.

The results for Maryland and D.C. are still coming in, but everybody appears to have called both of these races for Obama, too.

Obamamentum. Yes we can.

VERY enlightening graphs, Brendan. She is the Huckster of the Democratic party! Let's her Hillerby.

Looks like I'm not the only one to have noticed this.

Always nice to beat the NYT to press, though.
