It seems clear that John McCain is going to win the Republican nomination, probably tomorrow.
The Democratic nomination is not as easy to call. What does seem to be happening is a huge surge for Barack Obama. The latest polls have him in a dead heat with Hillary Clinton, the "establishment" candidate for the dems. I'm sticking with Obama to win the nomination, although it might take more than Super Tuesday to lock it up. We'll see.
Did you see Hillary's latest waterworks gimmick in Connecticut today? I know, I sound cynical, but this second timely display of tears on the campaign trail is pretty hard to believe. For the past 16 years she has been in the public eye and I don't recall ever seeing her cry. Then, in New Hampshire a couple weeks ago, feeling beat up and like she was about to lose that state's primary, bang! she's sniffling and showing how soft she is. Now, today, with a similar feeling of desperation as Obama seems to have the momentum, she pulls out the onion and bang- she's sniffling again for all the nation to see. Listen, the Clintons are skilled interpretors of the polls and the best campaigners this country has ever seen. They know what it takes to win, nothing is done with out calculation.
Hey, it worked in New Hampshire.
