Chuck Todd just broke it down on MSNBC in an extremely helpful way. He had Obama winning four more delegates than Hillary (out of 1700!). Wow. A real split decision. P.S. One thing to keep in mind, now that this thing has a real chance of going all the way to the convention: watch those head-to-head polls. If either Hillary or Obama looks a lot stronger against McCain as the year progresses (right now Obama looks about 4 points better, on average), those superdelegates might feel moved to follow the numbers. --Isaac Chotiner
Hillary As Martin Prince?

Chuck Todd on MSNBC just advanced one hypothesis for why Hillary seems to be doing so much better than expected. One theory: Obama was so far ahead in the recent tracking polls that many of his supporters assumed he'd win easily and didn't show up to vote.

NBC's Chuck Todd on a Huckabee Iowa loss: Huckabee is like George Mason University in the NCAA tournament a couple of years ago; Huckabee is a great story until he loses, and then he disappears from the country's consciousness. For Huckabee, there's no Plan B ... well, other than securing a television talk show contract. Todd's piece is good one-stop shopping for media CW on how the caucus results will be spun. --Michael Crowley
