Dean Takes Vermont
(Oh Yeah, and Kerry Wraps it Up)

It was all John Kerry nearly everywhere (even Georgia) on Super Tuesday. John Edwards’ populism again failed to be popular enough to get over the hump between second place and winning states. He is officially getting out of the race on Wednesday. Bush has already called Kerry to say congrats and bring it on. Exit polls suggest that voters were all about jobs, trade and the big one, electability. And McDonald’s has opted to phase out their Supersize Menu, another clear indicator that the culture wars will be central as we move towards November.

The Good news for Kerry. He won early. That’s also the bad news.

Concentration is important!
