Most of the results are in for what the media had dubbed "Super Tuesday II" -- and there are few surprises.
Sen. John McCain has clinched the GOP nomination. I'll hold my nose and vote for him.
Mike Huckabee was hoping for a little bump to put his delegate total above that of Mitt Romney, so that in 2012 or 2016, he would be seen as the guy in second place whose turn was next. That didn't happen, and I don't think it would work anyway.
Sen. Hillary Clinton resurrected herself. She won
every state three out of the four state primaries (as of right now she's trailing slightly in the Texas Caucus). Unfortunately, the proportional awarding of delegates in the Democratic contests is going to hurt her. However, this puts into serious play the chance that the Democratic Convention will be a bloodbath with neither Clinton nor Obama having enough regular delegates to clinch the nomination and instead the party insiders picking the nominee.
Obama may turn out to be human after all. The media appears to have started asking some serious questions about the junior senator from Illinois and the cesspool of Chicago politics that spawned him. Whether he wins the Democratic nod or not, voters will have a more thorough knowledge of their candidates -- and that's a good thing for Democracy.
