The votes are in and have come down with a split decision on Tuesday night. Hillary Clinton has won Indiana and Barack Obama has taken a somewhat expected victory in North Carolina.
Video from ABC News about Obama’s North Carolina victory:
Here is Obama’s entire victory speech from North Carolina:
Update by Michael
It is now 12:19 AM EST, and it is still too close to call. Hillary Clinton is leading by 1.7%, and there is 9% of the votes left to be counted. All of those votes are coming from Lake County, which currently is showing a 74% leaning toward Obama. This probably will not continue, but if there is a large enough differential, this will shrink Hillaryâ€™s numbers down substantially.
She is currently ahead by 20,000 votes. Lake County has over 123,000 voters.

An Associated Press report on the Indiana holdouts:
Video of Hillary speaking about Indiana:
Results are expected at 1am eastern, will report definitively then about the Indiana Primary.
Indiana has now been called by Fox News for Hillary Clinton. With 100% of the precincts in, Clinton managed to hold to about a 20,000 vote lead.
Ben Smith is reporting that Clinton has canceled morning media:
Tim Russert, a colleague reports, just said that Hillary Clinton canceled her scheduled appearances on the morning shows tomorrow.
It’s a sign of weakness she can ill afford at a moment when questions about whether she can continue are mounting.
Doesn’t mean anything but it could be a sign of some upcoming changes.

Well, the rural areas of Lake County stemmed the Obama tide. In the end, Lake County went from a 74% to a 55% favor of Obama as the last of the Lake County ballots were counted. Union County finally declared their results, which were very small, but 65% in favor of Clinton. Hillary Clinton ends up winning Indiana by 1.8%. A win is a win, but the margin of victory will not impress many superdelegates.
