Stop The Presses! Mo For Obama

Fox and MSNBC have called it. And that AP call seems to have been withdrawn. (As if the political media needed yet another credibility hit.)

This is a nice boost for Obama, although I'm not sure it changes the basic CW coming out of tonight, as articulated by this AP headline: "Analysis: Clinton and Obama Start Anew."

Incidentally, I think Noam makes an interesting point below about how Obama might have been victimized by inflated exit-poll-based expectations. But this might be a case where Hillary suffers from the same dynamic, thanks to the drama of Obama's Missouri "comeback," which isn't an actual event.

Case in point: The Obama camp just issued a press release taunting the Clinton campaign for an earlier statement gloating that, despite being outspent and out-endorsed, "Hillary Clinton won this important toss-up state." Tomorrow's damage-control spin on this front should be pretty entertaining--and contorted.
