Although Senator John McCain is the presumptive Republican nominee, he is still fighting off a challenge from former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee. Senators Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are still facing off in a dead heat!
The results of the so-called Potomac primaries are in and both McCain and Obama won them all – Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia.
On the McCain campaign, those wins guaranteed the machine that is forging towards its nomination. Again, the Democrats’ results produced question. By winning those three contests, Obama has pulled ahead of Clinton in the delegate lead. But what is becoming clear is these two candidates are heading for a showdown of showdowns in the Lone Star State March 4.
It’s high noon in Texas that day, as well as the potentially election-deciding state of Ohio. Obama and Clinton are in a race unseen in recent history. Both have said that regardless of the Democratic nominee, they will make history by nominating a woman or a black man, but neither could have foreseen the history would be made on the campaign trail itself with the closest national political race in ions.
