Potomac Primary

Is today. Virginia, Maryland, and D.C. Obama expected to win all by double digits, probably more.

If there's one thing this primary season has done, it's made me read Daily Kos - something I hadn't done regularly since, oh, 2005 or so.

Election season: Always brings out the inner leftist in me.

p.s. When do you think Hillary should concede? Looks like they're going through March 4th (Texas, Ohio, Rhode Island, somewhere else I think but I can't recall), but seeing as how all the momentum in the world is not in her favor, well ... she might start running out of money.

She'll win Texas, she might win Ohio. Those are big chunks.

Much as I'd love it to be, it's not over, yet.

After Obama has two full weeks to campaign solely in those states, coming off of (likely) 10 straight wins, with her having a cash crunch and him raising money out the ass, and her ground game poor and his excellent ... if he runs the table this month, which at this point seems likely, it's over.

Besides, she doesn't win *big* anywhere. If she does win those two states it'd be like 52-48, 51-49, etc. Obama BLOWS HER OUT when he wins.

Andrew, do you want to tempt the wrath of the whatever from high atop the thing?

I think she'll get the nomination. The momentum may not be in her favor, but she's ruthless and she's got a lot more support behind her than just some silly majority of voters like Obama.

Jon, the baseball gods have no interest in politics.
