Semi-Super Tuesday

John McCain finally clinched the GOP nomination. Hooray. Mike Huckabee gave an incredible revisionist-history recap of his campaign. He seems to think he came in second place, but his logic is flawed either way. He didn't come in second in delegate count because Mitt Romney did. He didn't come in second as far as just staying in, because Ron Paul hasn't officially dropped out. He said he and McCain ran the most honorable campaigns, but I can't think of a candidate from either party who ran a more disingenuous one than the Huckster. I'm glad this guy is finally off the national stage.

Rush Limbaugh called on his listeners to vote for Hillary Clinton last night, and she took three out of four states. She's still behind by about 100 delegates in the count, but she has reason to keep fighting. And she will. I need to keep reminding myself the Clintons can never be counted out. Even if she's behind in delegates and popular vote going into convention, if Obama hasn't clinched the nomination, she'll find a way to get it. I used to think that wouldn't happen, but never say never in politics.
