Obama Won Texas?

The major news media have been reporting for a week that Hillary Clinton has saved her campaign and built momentum by winning the primaries in Ohio and Texas. But now NPR has reported that she may not have won Texas after all. She won the popular vote but apparently lost the caucus vote, which could leave her with 95 delegates to Obama’s 98. According to NPR, it may not be sorted out until June. Meanwhile, the constant repetition of what is, at best, a half-truth continues to shape the opinions of people who don’t dig deeper — along with half-truths (or worse) like “Hillary has more experience” (because she was First Lady?) and “Obama doesn’t have detailed proposals.”
