Election 2008 Update: Clean sweep for Obama & Huckabee wins in Kansas

What a day for Senator Barack Obama. He won all of today’s contests, including the Louisiana primary and caucuses in Nebraska and Washington state and also caucuses in the Virgin Islands “completing his best night of the campaign,” according to ABC News.

Obama ripped Hillary Clinton and John McCain at the same time, “saying the election was a choice between debating the Republican nominee-in-waiting “about who has the most experience in Washington, or debating him about who’s most likely to change Washington. Because that’s a debate we can win.”

Meanwhile, Republicans in Kansas sent a message to the presumed GOP nominee, McCain, by voting en masse for his sole remaining opponent, Mike Huckabee, 60 percent to 24 percent. “Huckabee insisted before the votes were counted Saturday that he could still win the primary race, even though McCain has a big lead in delegates.” (Kansascity.com)

Won’t that be something if Clinton and McCain end up losing their respective party nominations? Obama is clearly dominating the post-Super Tuesday primaries and caucuses, while Clinton is spending her time wailing about what a newscaster said about her and her daughter Chelsea. Keep wasting your time Shrillary, while Obama dominates at the polls…

As for Huckabee, he is emerging in the primary with the exit of Mitt Romney. Republican voters just aren’t warming to McCain. But Huckabee? Good grief! This is the best the Republicans can come up with?
