Democrats Abroad pick Obama

Racking up his 11th straight victory, Barack Obama has won the week-long Democrats Abroad primary.

The Democrats Abroad is an organization sanctioned by the national party. Voting ran from Feb. 5 to Feb. 12, and results took about a week to tabulate as local committees around the globe gathered ballots. In addition to voting by Internet and mail, expatriates voted in person in more than 30 countries, at hotels in Australia and Costa Rica, at a pub in Ireland and at a Starbucks in Thailand.
Seven* delegates were at stake in the Democrats Abroad primary.

No word from Mark Penn yet about how much this one doesn't count, either.

* According to OpenLeft, it's either 11, 14, or 22. Or something.
