Via the Fact Hub this morning:
Estimates vary slightly, but according to Real Clear Politics, Hillary has received 15,095,663 votes to Sen. Obama's 14,973,720, a margin of more than 120,000 votes [Estimate w/IA, NV, ME, WA is 13K plus for Clinton]. ABC News reported this morning that "Clinton has pulled ahead of Obama" in the popular vote.
Money is not a big deal. Clinton's raised more than $3.5 million since the PA polls closed last night.
The AP asks: "Why can't Barack Obama close the deal? The contest in PA was the 4th major chance that Obama had to close the deal, and failed again. Anyone who thinks that Clinton is going to be out of the race in May is delusional. For us political junkies, it's quite a fix.
