Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. - Cyril Connolly

McCain wins - this relieves me in so many ways. Don't get me wrong, I'm not going to the dark side, but of all the Republicans, I can at least tolerate him, not wince when I see or hear him, and would appreciate the conversation and debate going forward. It would make an interesting election instead of a fearful, polarizing split.

The other two scare the living agnostic out of me in so many ways, and I'd hate to see the American Presidency "bought" by someone's private wealth, which Romney is in a real position to pull off. Huckleberry is just a an infomercial, Bible study, revival side show freak. You may as well elect Tom Cruise for the kind of beliefs he'll inflict into the Constitution and legal system.

But, the numbers that mean the most are delegates. Here is what CNN is predicting right now:

With a magic number of 2,025, Clinton has 232 delegates and Obama has 138. Edwards can't sustain this with only 62, and Super Tuesday is only going to hurt him further.

With a magic number of 1,191 for the Republican convention, McCain is now in the lead with 97. Romney is second with 74, and Huckleberry has 29. Guiliani is now trailing Ron Paul - ouch - that has to hurt.

    Guiliani has actually been tailing Ron Paul for quite some time -- a few weeks ago, FOX invited Guiliani to a debate and left Paul out, even though Paul had won more in whichever state has just had primaries.

    Gotta feel sorry for Guiliani, "America's Mayor" and all that, but I'm just as happy to keep him out of the White House. Even though he's more socially liberal, he seems to have a personality/persecution complex that would make him similar or worse than the President in responding to criticism.
