1) After a botched projection, Barack Obama has apparently defeated Hillary Clinton in Missouri, 49%-48%.
2) John McCain has defeated Mike Huckabee in Missouri, 33%-32%.
3) Both results could trigger a recount request, because the margin is less than 1 percent.
4) A recount is probably unlikely because Obama and Clinton will split the state's delegates.
5) John McCain will be the likely 2008 Republican nominee for president.
6) Clinton won traditionally big, strong Democratic states. Obama won smaller states that vote more Republican in general elections. This nomination fight will go on.
7) The delegate picture on the Democratic side remains muddled and unclear, but it looks and feels close.
8) Obama is strongest in the caucus format and those contests are next, with caucus contests in Nebraska and Washington on Saturday.
9) With wins in several southern states, Mike Huckabee made a strong case for himself as McCain's vice-presidential candidate.
10) No race in Missouri should ever be called without all of St. Louis City and County counted.
