First results are in: Obama easily winning Washington caucuses

The state Democratic Party is reporting the first results from the caucuses today. With 30% in, Obama is crushing Hillary Clinton 2 to 1 - 66% to her 31%. And it looks like Obama's lead may be growing.

So, just for the fun of it....

(Cue patriotic political theme music)

We have some breaking news just in for those of you who missed your caucus because you're camping out in the Cascade Mountains backcountry: The Northwest Progressive Institute is ready to project that Barack Obama is going to win the Washington state caucuses by an overwhelming margin.

Now, remember, you heard it here first!

(The traditional media, by the way, has begun projecting that Nebraska will also go for Barack Obama - his support there is equivalent to Washington's).

If Barack Obama sweeps Washington, Louisiana, and Nebraska tonight, it'll be a pretty bitter setback for Hillary Clinton.
