How Obama out-maneuvered Clinton

Obama used party rules to foil Clinton: "Obama's campaign mastered some of the most arcane rules in politics, and then used them to foil a front-runner who seemed to have every advantage—money, fame and a husband who had essentially run the Democratic Party for eight years as president."
He also got into the state Senate by challenging his opponents' petition signatures. When he ran for US Senate his chief rivals in both parties were run off by the Chicago Tribune. This is a guy who uses every angle.
