Your missionary to Capitol Hill, Washington, DC, Rob Schenck, reporting:
Last night was described as the political Super Bowl. If it was, it was the strangest of games: Four—arguably five—winning teams!
On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton came in first with Barack Obama a hare’s breath away. They remain neck and neck, but I still contend she’s the establishment’s pick and it’s just a matter of time. Of course, as always, I could be very wrong.
On the Republican side, John McCain was challenged by second-place winner Mitt Romney. Mike Huckabee came in third taking states and delegates.
The real story here is not the candidates who won, but the voter turn out. Democrats out-voted Republicans 2 to 1. If that trend continues, it portends a Hillary or Barack victory in November and the most pro-abortion, anti-traditional marriage, anti-acknowledgment of God administration imaginable come January, 2009.
The counts so far:
The winning Democrat needs 2,025
The Republican needs 1,191
I’ll be back with my analysis.
