Oregon, the morning after

Posted by David Postman

It appears that Barack Obama’s big win in Oregon last night will give him 30 of Oregon’s 52 Democratic delegates.

In the other big Democratic primary there, the Oregonian says state House Speaker Jeff Merkley beat grassroots attorney Steve Novick - but not by much.

Novick ended the campaign in his unique style, saying,

“We are going to go down in history with the greatest losers of all time.”

I think he’s right that he “proved there is a constituency for truth, a constituency for laughter, a constituency for courage.” Just not a majority for all those things.

The Oregonian’s Jeff Mapes has lots of good analysis at his blog, Mapes on Politics, including a look at SEIU successes in yesterday’s election.
