Alas, the Democratic party doesn’t love Florida, having stripped the state of its delegates for the sin of moving their primary to a pre-Super-Tuesday date. Too bad, because HC really could’ve used the delegates she would have gained by taking more votes than all the other democratic candidates combined.
I think the media has underplayed the role of generational politics in this race. Boomer Clinton plays very well with older voters, while Almost-Gen-X Obama pulls in youngsters. That dynamic has been consistent across states, while other factors have been variable.
Statistically, olders are far more likely to drag their butts to the polls than the 18-24 year old set (BO’s strongest contingent), and there are more of them to begin with. Polls across the country are mostly running in HC’s favor.

BREAKING NEWS: JOHNNY GOES MARCHING HOME
I’ve never been a fan of John Edwards as a presidential candidate, but by all accounts he’s a decent guy. He dropped out of the race today and will presumably now spend a lot more time with his cancer-stricken wife. I wish them the best.
