Primary and caucus round-up
Here's the updated tally, courtesy of CNN's cool voting returns thingy and MSNBC's rolling numbers doohickeys:

Kansas (GOP only)
Huckabee: 11,627 (60%)
McCain: 4,587 (24%)
Still haven't figured out that Romney quit the race: 653 (3%)
Uncommitted but showed up anyway ... just because...? - 84 (0%)

---

Louisiana (Dems) - 97% reporting
Obama - 207,667 (57%)
Clinton - 131,904 (36%)

Louisiana (GOP) - 97% reporting
Huckabee - 66,300 (44%)
McCain - 64,008 (42%)
Romney - 9,643 (6%)
Paul - 8,074 (5%)

//Note how many more Democrats voted in Louisiana than Republicans. The winning tally for Barack is more than three times the winning total for Huckabee...//

Nebraska (Caucus / Dems only) - 99% reporting
Obama - 25,986 (68%)
Clinton - 12,396 (32%)
Uncommitted - 99 (0%)

---

Washington (Dem caucus) - 96% reporting
Obama - 21,629 (68%)
Clinton - 9,992 (31%)
Uncommitted - 363 (0%)

Washington (GOP) - 83% reporting
Huckabee - 3,010 (24%)
McCain - 3,239 (26%)
Paul - 2,655 (21%) - well he did well!
Romney - 2,055 (16%)
Uncommitted - 1,545 (12%) -- well he did well ... too ...

//Same deal in Washinton, where the total Democratic turnout is clearly trouncing Republican turnout.//

Barack also won the caucuses in the Virgin Islands tonight, though I don't have the numbers. The Associated Press is calling it 59-29 in the delegate hunt for Barack versus Hillary.

Update: Did Barack Obama really win 89.9% of the vote in the Virgin Islands to Hil's 7.6%? Damn! Yep, looks so. Politico has it:

Obama: 1772 votes (89.9%)
Clinton: 149 votes (7.6%)

Update 2: What is the message in John McCain's 1) failure to see major turnout for what was supposed to be his victory march to the nomination in tonight's caucuses and primaries... and 2) big losses to Mike Huckabee in Louisiana and especially in Kansas, where he blew Baghdad John out? (Not to mention his failure to do better than a quarter of the Republican vote in Washington state, where he marched to a three-way tie with Huckabee and Ron Paul???) Is it GOP buyers remorse? The natural effect of the absense of Mitt, and proof that his voters will not go McCain's way? Revenge of the Dittoheads? (Oh yeah, wingers don't like Huckabee, either... but perhaps any port in a storm...?) Or is it that McCain inspires nothing so much as total ambivalence or apathy from voters in his own party? Damn, John, man does not win the White House with Independents alone. You've got to turn out some Republicans somewhere along the line...
