Obama Second in Nevada Vote, But Wins More Delegates

Democrat Barack Obama is taking his Nevada caucus defeat gracefully.

He says he conducted an "honest, uplifting campaign" that appealed to people's hopes instead of their fears.

Obama's campaign manager was far more pointed. He is accusing
rival Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign of "an entire week's worth of false, divisive attacks designed to mislead caucus-goers and discredit the caucus itself."

The Illinois senator finished behind Clinton in the popular vote. But he edged her out for national convention delegates at stake, taking 13 to her 12.
