[Patrick Appel] Paul Lukasiak tries to argue that Clinton actually has the popular vote lead. Tom summarizes Paul's argument:   

Apparently, if you only count votes up to Super Tuesday, discount every state that had a caucus, only go by the exit polling, and eliminate any voters who weren’t registered Democrats, then Hillary Clinton actually has the popular vote lead. In other news, based on exit polling and early voting from 2004 President Kerry will be running for reelection.

The idea that caucus states don't count is pretty bewildering, especially when the Clinton campaign is simultaneously arguing that Florida and Michigan voters were disenfranchised. Even if you count Michigan and Florida voters, Obama still has the popular vote.
