Predict here -- How close?

This is a different sort of prediction thread. I won't ask what percentages the candidates will get in NC and IN, but where they will end up after Tuesday's elections in their delegate quests -- in particular, how close they will get to having a majority of pledged delegates and a majority of overall delegates.
Keep in mind that Indiana awards 72 delegates and North Carolina awards 115 delegates (not including superdelegates).
Barack Obama is 133 pledged delegates away from getting a majority of pledged delegates.
Hillary Clinton is 294 pledged delegates away from getting a majority of pledged delegates
Barack Obama is 285 delegates away from getting a majority of delegates.
Hillary Clinton is 416 delegates away from getting a majority of delegates.
Since the DNC currently does not include FL and MI, these figures don't either. Feel free to post your predictions based on the above numbers and the ones with delegates from those states. http://demconwatch.blogspot.com/2008/05/ fl-mi-by-numbers.html presents some interesting FL/MI scenarios.
