ELECTION ’08: Let’s make that 11 wins in a row

Here’s the story in it’s entirety. I love that last line:

WASHINGTON — Barack Obama won the Democrats Abroad global primary in results announced Thursday, giving him 11 straight victories in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination.

The Illinois senator won the primary in which Democrats living in more than 30 countries voted by Internet, mail and in person. The voting took place over the course of a week, beginning Feb. 5.

Hillary Rodham Clinton has not won a nominating contest since Super Tuesday, more than two weeks ago. (AP)

UPDATE:  From PolitcalTicker:

Barack Obama – 65 percent, Hillary Clinton – 32 percent, with the rest of the candidates pulling in less than 1 percent of the vote each.

Democrats Abroad will send 22 delegates to the Democratic Convention, with half a vote each, carrying a total of 11 votes.

According to Democrats Abroad UK Chairman Bill Barnard, eight of the 22 will be superdelegates: two of those have said they will support Clinton, two have said they will support Obama, and four are undecided. Fourteen of the 22 will be pledged delegates.

So it was another landslide, and Clinton maintained her title for Mrs. 32%.
