Super Tuesday

Well, that was exciting (yawn). My wife, the resident Democrat of the household, went out and duly cast her quixotic vote for Senator Edwards. Here in New York, alas, Edwards needed a lot more help than that. (By the way, I forgot to mention that I saw honest-to-God Kucinich volunteers on my sidewalk last weekend, handing out flyers. Hope springs eternal).

I guess Edwards is giving his official concession speech tonight, but it changes little. Edwards has been running for vice president for some time now, perhaps for the entire campaign. He'd better hope he wins, too, or else he's unemployed (as is my wife's cousin, who works for the senator's office). Kerry is beginning to drop hints about picking Edwards as his running mate, which I think is a no-brainer.

And God bless the fine folks of Vermont for handing Howard Dean his first (last?) primary victory. As a transplanted Southerner, I understand the romance of the Lost Cause.
