Victory Is Mine!

Actually, both Clinton and Obama did very well. But Hillary isn't getting proper credit for her achievement.

Winning New York and California is big.

Losing Connecticut is bad because she should have won the tri-state area.

But winning Massachusetts is huge. Senators Kennedy and Kerry endorsed Obama, as did the state's very popular governor. Not only that but the Kennedy endorsement led to ridiculous media coverage of other Kennedy family Obama endorsements (including Caroline Kennedy and Maria Shriver, neither of whom are more qualified than the average non-rich or famous person to make an endorsement). The Massachusetts political machine was dead set against Hillary and the media helped the machine along. She still won. That should be a big story of the night. She's that kind of fighter.
