For personal reasons (When it rains, it pours!), I've been out of touch for a few days and not paying much attention to the news.

This surprised me a bit, because Obama is supposed to be a candidate with a positive outlook:
(WASHINGTON) — Barack Obama's presidential campaign complained in a letter to the Nevada Democratic Party Wednesday that rival Hillary Rodham Clinton benefited from numerous violations of party rules during the state's caucuses on Saturday.


The letter to Nevada Democratic Chairwoman Jill Derby from Obama lawyer Robert Bauer lists instances of early door closings, obstruction of voters, and improper handling of voter preference cards. Obama aides said the campaign has received more than 1,600 complaints, including 300 that came in to a hotline at the time of the caucuses.

Bauer said the campaign is not challenging the outcome of the caucuses at the precinct level, but he asked Derby to conduct an inquiry into the Clinton campaign tactics during the caucuses....


The Clinton campaign has also complained about behavior at the caucuses....
Maybe both Obama and Clinton are following in the footsteps of Al Gore, who whined like the member of a losing junior-varsity sports team when he challenged the results in the 2000 Election?
