Come on, that debate was meaningless last night. No one really said a thing of any substance and the entire racial issue was somewhat put to bed. The uncommitted vote in Michigan among blacks was at almost 70% which obviously augurs well for Obama. This thing will go past Super Tuesday. Let’s see what happens in Nevada and South Carolina. We already know how the Clintons will spin the Nevada loss but a big win in South Carolina will be a huge boost. Keep the faith.

Will do. I haven't assumed a Clinton victory, despite the dispirited tone of this post. I'm just thinking out loud. In this campaign, God only knows what's around the corner.
