Counting Down

McCain snagged 18 delegates in victories on Saturday in American Samoa and the Northern Marianas. With a win in Puerto Rico on Sunday he gained 20 more delegates to reach 996. The race very well could end on March 4 when 265 delegates are at stake. Mike Huckabee, after a Saturday Night Live performance that revealed he knows the jig is up, will presumably stick to his word and formally leave the race once McCain’s delegate count hits 1191. His continued presence has proven only the most minor annoyance to McCain and gave McCain the pretext to get on the air after primary wins over the last few weeks. Huckabee’s future job prospects remain bright. If nothing else, he represents a new style of leadership for Christian conservatives.
