On this day:

Huckabee, Obama win in Alabama

From the AP:

With 96 percent of Alabama's precincts reporting, Huckabee had 41 percent, McCain 37 percent, Romney 18 percent and Texas Rep. Ron Paul 3 percent. No candidate crossed the 50 percent threshold needed to win all of Alabama's GOP delegates, which means they will be divided on a formula.

On the Democratic side, Obama had 56 percent, Clinton 42 percent, and former Sen. John Edwards got 1 percent even though he had dropped out. Under the Democratic Party's rules, Obama and Clinton will split the Democratic delegates proportionately.
