As of midnight last night, pretty much everything was in from Indiana except Lake County which is heavily African-American and is in the Chicago media market. While the Lake County officials were claiming they were counting absentee ballots before releasing any numbers, there were some - well, there was me - who claimed they were waiting for everything else in the Hoosier state to come in so they knew how many votes Obama needed to win the state.

Maybe not, but it looked pretty suspicious.

In the end, Indiana will be close enough so that even if Obama wins, Clinton will not drop out; so this will go on for at least another month.
