Super Tuesday didn’t tell me anything that I didn’t already know. I knew that Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were very close. They are in a tight race. Super Tuesday did nothing to change my mind. This race is not going to be a sprint but a marathon.
On the Republican side, I knew that the more that people saw Mitt Romney the less they liked him. John McCain, on the other hand, is a likable guy. Mike Huckabee is also very likable. So, Huckabee picked up some southern states – no surprise. He is from Arkansas and appeals to Southern Christians. John McCain increased his lead. Mike Huckabee picked up enough delegates to continue to matter. Mitt Romney, on the other hand, has to decide whether spending millions of dollars to come in a distant second or third is worth it. As my mother said, “No sense throwing good money after bad.”
Talk show host Ed Schultz does a nice job summarizing the results on CNN.
