Clinton Wins West Virginia

Clinton won West Virginia as expected.

RCP: Two possible scenarios for tonight's vote in West Virginia: 1) it's dismissed as too little, too late for Clinton and doesn't change a thing or 2) her margin of victory is so big it reignites doubts about Obama's ability to win working class white voters in Rust Belt states and moves the narrative slightly back in Clinton's direction and away from the "it's over" theme that's pervaded coverage for the past week. Smart money is on the former, but given WV is the only game in town (as opposed to next week when the vote in Kentucky will be offset by equal coverage of the vote in Oregon), it will depend to a certain extent on how the media covers tonight.

I'm guessing the first, as RCP suggested.
