32. Pffft....MSM called it for her that night with most of us still caucusing in TX
Literally...I got home about 10:30 pm that night when ours ended and the news was declaring her a TX "victory"...with NO caucus results reported yet. So she got her 3 days of a faux victory lap on the shoulders of her M$M and then the TX caucus numbers/results went sharply for Obama. Not that the word caucus was even in the M$M vocab that week,
