McCain, Obama win Vermont

Barack Obama and John McCain won the primaries in Vermont, the Associated Press, CNN, NBC, and practically everyone else said as soon as the polls closed.

There are no results yet. Exit polling says Obama beat Hillary Clinton pretty much across the board, winning among white women, women overall, men, senior citizens, voters without college degrees, voters who earn less than $50,000 a year. Based on that, there wasn't much left for her.

McCain will get all 17 delegates at stake in Vermont's Republican primary.

Actual results of votes are probably a few minutes away.
