Who won the New Hampshire Primary?

If you define "win" as "gets the most delegates for the convention" - which is the point after all - then you have an interesting situation:

Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama each won nine delegates in New Hampshire's Democratic primary, followed by former Sen. John Edwards with 4 delegates, an AP analysis of primary results shows. All 22 of New Hampshire's delegates to the national convention this summer have been allocated.

Clinton and Obama won the same number of delegates, even though Clinton edged Obama in votes, because New Hampshire awards delegates proportionally, and the vote was relatively close.
So by my count that is 1.5 for Obama and .5 for Clinton.
