Key to Dem primary in Puerto Rico?

Lots of people crunching the numbers in the Democratic race for president. The left-wing Markos at Daily Kos believes Obama will win, as does conservative Bill Kristol.

Michael Barone, the best number cruncher out there, thinks Puerto Rico is the sleeping giant that might give Hillary the edge.

This means that Puerto Rico is likely to have more leverage in Democratic National Convention votes than any single state, no matter how large. Its leader will be able to deliver a 63-vote margin for the leading candidate.

That 1999 pardon by Bill Clinton might come in handy for his wife.
