Richelieu games the day's voting:

Obama is moving up and up, ever since South Carolina and Teddy K. He is now tied in most national polls. If he wins New Jersey in Hillary's backyard, wins the popular vote in CA, and comes closer in NY than she does in Illinois - all likely in my view - he'll be the new frontrunner...

Lots of talk in the media about McCain vs. The Mighty Wombats of Talk Radio. Ask President Tancredo about that one. The talkers can raise an issue to prominence, they can entertain, but they do not really deliver actual votes. Sorry Rush.

I'm sure Obama will do well - but I fear he cannot surpass expectations of a small national lead. The question today is whether her victories are too crushing for Obama to come back on February 12.
