McCain Claims Super Tuesday Victory
After the dust cleared on Super Tuesday, John McCain seized front-runner status in the race for the Republican presidential nomination. He picked up 610 of the 1191 delegates needed for victory. Romney secured 257, Huckabee captured 202 and Ron Paul trailed with 9 delegates.
This is somewhat of a mystery since McCain adheres more to Democrat socialist values than Republican rugged individualism. I suppose part of his support springs from the constant liberal media blitz that trumpets McCain as their choice. In fact many have already crowned him the victor suggesting to the remaining states not to bother.
Another may be that our society as a whole has become more liberal making McCain’s victory a reflection of that shift. Finally, it could be as simple as the majority of Republicans think McCain is the best man for the job.
Whatever the reason McCain is in the lead and if the path is unaltered, our next president will be a Democrat.
