Super Tuesday has come and gone and the presidential election is proving historic on many levels. Now it appears with a weekend sweep of primaries and caucuses Senator Barack Obama has the momentum heading into uncharted waters for the Democratic Party.
As the Republicans try to rally around their presumptive nominee, Senator John McCain, the democrats are still wrestling with the decision between old and new, a woman and a man and who between Senator Hillary Clinton and Obama stands the best chance of beating McCain.
On Saturday Obama won Louisiana, Washington, and Nebraska before pulling an upset in Maine to complete the weekend sweep.
Clinton, on the other hand, seems to be moving in the wrong direction. She replaced her campaign manager over the weekend and donated $5 million to the campaign from her own personal finances. With Clinton showing sings of trouble, the so-named “Potomac” primary arrives on Tuesday. Obama is expected to continue his streak winning Virginia, Washington, D.C. and Maryland.
Stay tuned…the race between Obama and Clinton is unprecedented in history. At this point, the pair are in a virtual tie with delegates needed to clinch the nomination. Not since 1952 has a party failed to have a nominee going into its summer convention. This is looking as if it is going to be that year.
