The Democratic Caucuses

I'm following the live results on the Democratic caucuses. Very early on, Edwards had about a 6 point lead and Hillary had a slight lead over Obama, but presumably those were less populated precincts reporting, which should have favored Edwards. As the night has gone on, and the more populated precincts have reported, Obama has looked stronger and stronger. As of this moment (9:30 EST/8:30 Central), Obama has a little more than a five percentage point lead (in delegates) over Edwards, who is in a virtual tie with Hillary. A little over 80% of the precincts have reported, so it looks safe to say that Obama is going to win....but I'm not saying anything for certain just yet.
