Stupor Tuesday Update

I have awoken from my slumber to discover that Sen. Clinton has indeed won the Texas primary, though Sen. Obama will likely win their bonus caucus. And so she wins the narrative war, even if the actual delegate victory was minimal at best.

I'm sure pundits are trying to figure out how this happened... what turned the tide? Did the smear campaigns-- Muslim emails, Kenyan garb photo-- have an impact? Was it that NAFTA thing? The 3am ad? The SNL-backed narrative of Hillary as a victim of the Obama machine? Anyone have their own theories? Whatever the answer, the race continues.

And as this all goes on, Hillary's war for delegates will be the real underlying story.
