Leave it to the Clintons to pull off a brilliant maneuver in a town already known for prestidigitation. 

Though the polls showed Hillary to be ahead all along, the Clintons still brilliantly managed to spin the press into believing Hillary's victory was some sort of miracle.  No small feat.

Talk about playing the expectations game!

The truth is that Hillary's seasoned campaign team (and husband) outmaneuvered Obama's team, leaving me to wonder if what happened in Vegas will stay in Vegas (or if this is a harbinger of things to come) ...

It should be noted, however, that Barack Obama seems to have actually picked up more delegates than Hillary in Nevada.  Let's see if Obama's team can now spin Nevada into a victory for him.  If the situations were reversed, the Clintons, I'm sure, would turn that lemon into lemonade ...
