Super Tuesday

It’s nearly 4am, the polls are soon closing in California and I’ll go to bed soon. Somewhat predictably Obama and Clinton seem to be trading wins and there’s still very little in it.

Hillary seems to be weirdly obsessed with her website, she gave the URL in a speech and it says on the front of her podium. It’s a bit odd really.

Huckabee is doing surprisingly well for the Republicans, though he’s clearly quite a nutter. His speech was full of faintly disturbing ‘Christian’ philosophising but he’s been winning votes. Mitt Romney seems pretty much fucked right now. This is, of course a good thing.

Some Democrats really don’t like Hillary. Leading Republican McCain is something of a moderate voice. It’s quite likely that, should Hillary get the nod, that McCain becomes an actual viable alternative to more centrist Democrats that have issues with Hillary. But if McCain takes on Huckabee, a raving fundamentalist loon (albeit a very erudite one), as his vice-president on the ticket, that’s going to be a much less attractive proposition.
