Clinton wins Massachussetts and New York

CNN and NBC are projecting that Hillary Clinton will be the victor of the Massachusetts and the New York Democratic primaries. The percentages in this case might not tell the whole story, though. The ultimate distribution of delegates may be closer than the margin of victory in the popular vote.

This puts a lot of pressure on Obama to snag California to beef up his delegate count - and to be able to pick up some momentum.

On MSNBC, Chris Matthews is characterizing Clinton's Massachusetts win as a victory for Hillary over the Kennedy family - as if Obama wasn't her competitor!

The Democratic race remains a close one - and Super Tuesday seems unlikely to change anything. That will certainly put Washington's caucuses in the spotlight.
