Barack Obama easily won the Wyoming caucuses today and added 7 delegates to his tally, Chris Cillizza reports in his Washington Post blog. Obama won 61% of the vote and Hillary Clinton won 38%, scoring 5 delegates. Obama campaign chief David Plouffe called the victory "a very important win" while Clinton's camp depicted the result as a surprisingly good "near split in delegates."
Both campaigns fired off memos over Iraq war plans as the Wyoming votes were being tallied. Clinton's blasted her rival for claiming to have a pullout plan even though departed adviser Samantha Power said the campaign had none. Obama's camp replied that he "has made hard end dates about Iraq a centerpiece of his campaign."
