Did Obama Win Nevada

On Saturday, in Nevada, they elected city delegates whom will then go to the county and then to the state, where the national delegates will be selected to go to Denver.
 
There are two kind of delegates. The more important kind, nationally speaking, are the latter, of which Obama — according to a revised AP count — is expected to emerge with 13 to Clinton's 12.
That's the technical grounds on which Obama claimed a kind of victory. The Clinton campaign's and the Nevada party's objections to this earlier this evening were yet more technical, but also accurate: The national delegates haven't yet been formally awarded.
"The Obama campaign is wrong. Delegates for the national convention will not be determined until April 19," said Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson.
 
But the only plausible scenario in which the awarding of delegates chances is one in which one of the candidates drops out of the race and endorses the other. In which case it'll be academic. So in the only likely scenario that matters, Obama will wind up with one more delegate out of Nevada, an all-but-meaningless number in any case.
