Berman's count: 606-534  —  David Plouffe, on a conference call just now, offered the Obama campaign's estimate of where they stand at this moment in terms of delegates.  —  “We are, in terms of delegates, ahead currently: about 606 to 534, in terms of pledged delegates awarded tonight,” he said.

OBAMA CAMPAIGN PROJECTS 72 DELEGATE LEAD (FOR NOW)...  Barack Obama's presidential campaign is claiming an early lead in pledged delegates for Super Tuesday.  —  In a media conference call at 10:30pm, Campaign Manager David Plouffe estimated that Obama leads Hillary Clinton in pledged delegates by 606 to 534.

The Campaign Spot:
Latest Exits Include One Massive ‘Wow.’ I Mean, ‘WOW.’  —  Here's a later round of exits.  It includes an absolute shocker that, I suspect, will have Hugh Hewitt jumping out of his chair...  Arizona: McCain 36 percent, Romney 36 percent, Huckabee 7 percent.

The Campaign Spot:
The Great Big Early Exit Poll Report  —  I just got a big pile of exit poll data.  —  The early wave in California: McCain 40 percent, Romney 36 percent, Huckabee 10 percent.  —  Fascinating and fun as it is, I remind my readers that this doesn't tell us that much, as we don't know what the district-by-district breakdown is.
Mark Steyn / The Corner:
The morning after  —  I think John O'Sullivan is right.  There was an explicit anti-Romney vote in the south.  A mere month ago, in the wake of Iowa and New Hampshire, I received a ton of emails from southern readers saying these pansy northern states weren't the “real” conservative heartland …
Jonathan Weisman / The Trail:
Romney's Expenses Per Delegate Top $1M  —  Republican campaign operatives call it the Gramm-o-meter, the money a candidate spends per delegate won, in honor of Phil Gramm, the former Texas senator who spent $25 million and won just 10 delegates, or $2.5 million per, in 1996.
Josh Marshall / Talking Points Memo:
SUMMING IT UP  —  Before we give way to the night, let me try to pull together some rough thoughts on what happened here tonight.  It's probably best to start with the indisputable facts.  I haven't had a chance to look at the popular vote.  But every estimate I've seen says this was close to an exact tie in delegates.

The New Republic:
Who Won Super Tuesday?  —  It's hard to say, but if you put a gun in my head, I'd say John McCain and (very slightly) Hillary Clinton, but the elections revealed weaknesses in McCain and in both of the leading Democratic candidates.  McCain blunted Mitt Romney's challenge, but he failed consistently to win over conservative voters.
Andrew Sullivan / The Daily Dish:
The Biggest News  —  I'd say it's Huckabee's astonishing resilience, with so few dollars and so little organization.  The Bush-Rove party is a disproportionately religious organization and the pastor cannot be denied.  The GOP's natural ticket is obviously McCain-Huckabee.
Andy McCarthy / The Corner:
Re: The Die Has Been Cast  —  Remember the Clinton years?  We should — we may be on the verge of reliving them.  But I recall being most frustrated when some anti-Clinton zealot would claim the president had ordered an assassination or run cocaine through Mena Airport.
