He wins Florida and he wins the lead in the Republican race. Its a winner take all state and its 57 delegates means that MaCain is generating exactly the sort of momentum that didn't seem possible last week. Now, with only a week before Super Tuesday, a 23 delegate lead, and, as the cherry on top, the upcoming endorsement of Giuliani, John McCain is clearly the man to beat. Its today's upbeat story.
The down beat story is Clinton's win of... zero delegates. So why is she there? When the state chose to put its vote before February 5, the party stripped its delegates from the convention. But with Obama beginning to generate some momentum himself, she wants her ace in the hole. If she plays it, and wins, it will ruin the Democrats for a generation.
