WEST DES MOINES -- The total count of voters is a whopping 254 here tonight. The precinct captain estimates that's about DOUBLE the turnout in 2004. That makes the viability threshold 39 (254 times 15%).
After the first count, Obama leads the pack with almost HALF of the support -- 106 supporters. Clinton is a distant second, with 47 supporters, and Edwards comes in at 42. (Keep in mind, West Des Moines is Obama country -- high income, high education, low union membership)
Biden weighs in at 25. Twenty-five for Richardson. Seven undecided.
And poor Team Dodd? Three.
Ten minutes of realignment beginning now.
