Barack Obama won the Wyoming caucuses Saturday, beating Hillary Clinton by double digits after a day of historic turnout in the state.

With 96 percent of precincts reporting, Obama had 59 percent to Clinton’s 40 percent. Both candidates campaigned in the state ahead of the caucuses, but the onus was on Obama to regain his momentum after Clinton disrupted his winning streak Tuesday, scoring wins in Texas, Ohio and Rhode Island.

Her victories kept her campaign alive, pushing the race forward to Wyoming, where just 12 convention delegates in 23 county caucuses were at stake. Next up is Mississippi, which holds its primary Tuesday, and then Pennsylvania, which votes April 22.

With the almost unprecedented political attention, turnout was high as thousands of Wyoming voters deluged caucus sites.

Obama got a big bump from Albany County, which contains the University Wyoming. The state Democratic Party reported 75 percent of caucus-goers there went for Obama.

O’Bama continues to run the smaller states. The Machine is probably ignoring the smaller states making this possible.

Yea, who would have thought that Bill Clinton would have been outfoxed in caucuses by Hussein, Jr.?

So do you think WY’s liberals are pro-Obama or anti-HRC?

One must be registered Democrat in WY to vote in a Democrat caucus.

Yes. At least McCain will be fairly quiet since he is about out of money and can’t raise any more until after the Convention. he probably wasn’t going to raise a lot of H-— anyway.

Like other unmentionable habits, apparently supporting Hillary Clinton is something people are a good deal less likely to do if they know someone is watching and can identify them.

Yeh, who cares? Wyoming has a few thousand Dems total

They are there in order to make the cattle look more intelligent (for export purposes).
