Whew. Friday I took the day off from work to attend the Rally for Obama at Seattle's Key Arena (more photos at my photo blog) and it was an electric event. Then on Saturday I attended my cacucus, which strained to deal with throngs of people streaming in to make their voice and vote heard--over four times the number of people who attended in 2004. As the above map shows, Obama won handily (all but the one purple county; the percentages show the Obama victory margin). An amazing day.
UPDATE: Turns out Douglas county mis-reported their results, and Obama WON THAT COUNTY TOO.

I was unable to get to the Hillary event, but the Seattle paper The Stranger has this report and the above video of the "youth vote" reactions to her. (They promise to interview "some really really elderly people" about Obama's rally today.)
But I myself am going to the Obama rally after all. Photos coming soon...

As of 9:30pm, PST, Feb 6:
CNN ("including superdelegates and pledged delegates") says: Clinton 823, Obama 741
MSNBC says: Obama 838, Clinton 834
FoxNews (citing the Associated Press as the source) says:Clinton 1024. Obama 933NPR ("includes pledged delegates plus party and elected officials" and also citing the AP) says: Clinton 1045, Obama 960
But we don't vote for Messiahs. We vote for leadership. He's still got my caucus-vote this Saturday (for some of my reasons why, see my comment as "Andy Niable" here) and apparently all eyes are gonna be on my state, the largest delegate-stake on the first post-Super-Tuesday contest day.
Obama arrives in Seattle tomorrow, and has a rally at 11 am (which I can't attend due to work). Hillary's campaign had originally scheduled to send Bill, but Hillary herself apparently decided to show up, and has a rally at 8pm.
