The battle is over. Let’s ride down out of the hills and shoot the wounded:




  • Big Winner? Barack Obama. But he also faces a big racial divide. The question next Tuesday is whether he can win white and Latino votes.



  • Big Losers. The Clintons. Hillary said she found her voice in New Hampshire. Unfortunately, Bill found his in South Carolina. Obama’s victory speech put the Clinton’s in their box: The Past. They look so 1990s now.



  • Crazy Like Foxes? The Clintons are feeling their short-term pain. Ted and Caroline Kennedy endorse Obama. The New York-Washington commentariat is in full cry because the Clintons allegedly played the race card. But – as Pat Buchanan, of all people, pointed out – the Clintons may have put a big hole in Obama’s boat. The Clintons have never cared much about what the Smart People say; they’ve fought those battles before and believe they can always go around the media and the political insiders.



  • On to Denver! Super Duper Tuesday looks like Super Duper Confusion. Watch all three Democratic candidates claim victory next Tuesday.



  • The Third Man. John Edwards’ strategy is not hopeless. It would not be the first time two candidates destroyed each other and left a big hole for the third candidate to run through.



  • Calling Bob Shrum. Obama’s speech put his finger on what got Edwards in third place: Too angry. Too rich versus poor. Time to smile again, like in the South Carolina debate.
