Hillary and Mitt Kicking Up Dust in Nevada

Looks like Hillary Clinton's momentum is kicking, as is Mitt Romney's. My present money is on this mix in November, but I would not count Barack Obama out just yet.

Bill Clinton, however, is starting to look shrill, to use a turn of phrase often given to someone else.

I wouldn't say momentum. The way the numbers are reported deceive. Obama came in very close in both elections that he got 2nd place in, and Hillary came in 3rd in Iowa. This has left them with an exactly tied delegate count at the moment, with Obama leading S. Carolina by 10%, and unlikely to lose by the Race Vote. Things could change, but I think this is going to go into Super Duper Teusday with anybody's campaign.

The only thing that could make it better is if Edwards looked at the tea leaves and withdrew before S. Carolina, throwing his support and delegates to Obama.

I agree. Anyone's race. I think it is really just Hillary and Obama at this point. Edwards' has not made any real base.

On the Republican side, it can also go any which way, but Rudy, Ron Paul, Fred T., all not part of the picture. I could be wrong - and I'd bet on that.

Tuper Suesday will be one unusual day, I think, maybe with more than the usual primary voters.
