Obama aide: How Clinton may have wonBreaking News
Now, the camera-shy Plouffe is revealing what surprised him the most about Clinton’s campaign: the New York senator's strategists willingness to concede a string of caucus states to the Obama camp. In the process Obama won a vast sum of delagates and created a lead in the delegate count that ultimately proved fatal to Clinton's chances.
"We were surprised because at some point it became likely that it was going to be a battle that went on for some time, and delegates that are gained through a caucus are no different than through a primary—so every contest mattered," Plouffe told Portfolio Magazine.

The title should be "How Clinton MIGHT Have Won."
"May" is present tense, meaning that the possibility is still there (what, pending a recount?).
"Might" is past tense, meaning that she didn't win.
