We're calling them the Potomac Primaries.

I think Obama is worried. Even though I've been a registered independent since I was 18, I've had three Obama campaigners come to my house in the last three days.

My caller ID did record two different calls from a "Hillery Clinton" from a VA 703 area code number over the weekend.

I'm not even going to bother to vote as the only election I'm allowed to vote on is School Board.

If McCain ends up short after having everything handed to him, it would be very interesting to see what happens with Romney's delegates, as his campaign is suspended rather than folded. I can't see Romney supporting Huckabee, but I could see them uniting for a compromise candidate to knock off McCain if it ever got to the Convention.
Interesting question on the Dems side: Who is the respected party leader who brokers a deal if it is a toss-up? Jimmy Carter is something neither would want wrapped around their neck like an anchor, so he can't be counted on. In a normal situation, Bill Clinton would be in that role, but he's disqualified. Kerry as the most recent nominee and Kennedy on seniority usually would qualify, but they've thrown in their lot with Barack, so they are disqualified. Bobby Byrd is a senior member, but he'd probably be getting his good white suit and hood bleached that day. I can't see the Clinton's letting Al Gore make the deal, so that would put the kibosh on him. Convention is in Denver, does that mean Gary Hart brokers the arrangement? If Edwards had stuck around for another 6 days, he really could have been sitting in a position of great party strength in the 3rd slot.

Can't even begin to guess at that until after March 4. How much will Obama possibly winning something like 10-12 states in a row impact the dynamic in Ohio and Texas? If Obama takes two out of three of the Ohio, Texas, and Pennsylvania group it will be very hard for Clinton to portray herself as the worthwhile nominee, and as much as her and Bill will have a lot of favors to call in, the media spin at that point could make it untenable. Of course if she sweeps the big 3 then I have no idea.

This would be even more fun had Edwards won any sizeable number of delegates before dropping out. If he had say 120 or so then he becomes someone whose feet need much kissing.

Looking to the general election, if Clinton gets the nod through some sort of old-school backroom deal, leaving Obama looking like he got Bret Hart-style screwed, does that put Illinois in play for McCain?

Yeah. I have to say I really don't see the logic in what Edwards did. Either stick around another week and see what happens (picking up a few more delegates that might get you some leverage for an AG nomination), or throw you delegates and endorsement to someone while you're still relevant. Just dropping it made no sense at all, unless there's some deal we don't know about or angle I'm not figuring.

For what little it might be worth, North Carolina is shaping up to be a huge state in the primary process at this point, and that might be the one place his endorsement could carry a good amount of weight. Maybe he's waiting until then, see who things are breaking for, and try to use his endorsement to make it seem like he's responsible for their carrying NC.
