55 - 45

Clinton gets bragging rights for Indiana. But it's basically a tie. Overall, counting both states, Clinton won 1,273,696 votes; and Obama won 1,528,897. It was a 55 - 45 percent win for Obama in the popular vote. And it's now basically impossible for her to make a popular vote argument, even with Florida and Michigan. After the last month of unremitting Freak Show attacks, that's a remarkable show of strength and resilience. Obama's delegate lead grows. He will have the majority of the popular vote. He has far more money and far more donors. The logic of Clinton's remaining in the race dwindles to the point of vanishing altogether.

Know hope.
