DENVER -- On Super Tuesday, Hillary Clinton won her adopted state by a landslide. She won Arkansas' Democratic primary with 70 percent of the vote to Barack Obama's 26 percent, and captured a large majority of the state's pledged delegates.

So it was particularly symbolic when Arkansas' delegation to the Democratic convention, after expressing its pride in its one-time first lady, gave every single one of its 47 votes to Obama.
