Obama beats Clinton decisively in North Carolina, and loses by a very slim margin in Indiana. How do they take this from him, asks Andrew Sullivan:

There is no calculation that currently gives the Clintons a majority of
the popular vote. There is now no mathematical possibility of them
getting more delegates. Obama has won by far the most states. He has
raised far more money; he has 1.5 million donors, mainly small sums. He
has crushed her among new voters and young voters; and as a black
politician, his support spans all races and classes. And recall: he is
a freshman senator with a very funny name against the biggest brand
name in American politics and a worldwide celebrity whose chief
campaigner was a former two-term president of the United States.

Clinton MUST now concede. There is no mathematical, physical or philosophical way of her winning. Read here for more.
