Misconceptions Regarding Perceptions

UPDATE: Is HRC really in this much trouble?

I thought this was very interesting.

It would seem as though that everything is par for the course in that the Clintons are winning the war of perception regarding ST's outcome, while the substance of the outcome lies seems to be a very different reality.

In a surprise twist after a chaotic Super Tuesday, Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) passed Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) in network tallies of the number of delegates the candidates racked up last night.
Clinton was portrayed in many news accounts as the night's big winner, but Obama's campaign says he wound up with a higher total where it really counts -- the delegates who will choose the party's nominee at this summer's Democratic convention.
With the delegate count still under way, NBC News said Obama appears to have won around 840 delegates in yesterday's contests, while Clinton earned about 830 -- "give or take a few," Tim Russert, the network's Washington bureau chief, said on the "Today" show.

Imagine that.
