So last Tuesday Obama rolled up huge margins of victory in MD, VA, and DC. McCain had a scare in VA but won by a decent margin.

Now news is coming out today that Romney is going to endorse McCain. If his delegates do vote McCain that gives McCain enough for the nomination, thus ending the GOP race effectively (not that it was going on before that).

As for the Dems...Howard Dean must be screaming a lot these days watching his party go through holy war and burn through unspeakable sums of money in this primary.

It is looking like Obama is beginning to pull ahead in WI, so he could end up going into March 4 with a 10 state win streak and the biggest delegate lead anyone has yet had in this campaign. Can Clinton rack up big enough wins in TX, OH, and RI to bring the pledged delegate lead back to a close margin? Can Obama continue to make inroads with white men and young Hispanics enough to make Texas close? Will Edwards make an endorsement? This race is fascinating and unlike anything most of us have seen in our lifetimes.

The advantage for McCain is in the ability to court the base while the Dem's are sparring. The downside is courting the base could alienate the other voters he needs to win and it provide fodder for the Dems.

Money burning aside, the continuing campaign helps keep the Dems in the news and as long as they avoid the real personal crap helps them get their message out. The real danger for them is in having the superdelegates decide it.

Romney's endorsement indicates to me that the Reps understand the have to put everything aside to beat the Dems.

The next eight months should be a lot of fun.
