Congrats to Barack backers in Utah . . .

. . . for a well-run campaign and backing a quality candidate. To borrow a golf term, Barack's and Hillary's demographics across the Super Tuesday states reinforces our view that a Clinton/Obama or Obama/Clinton ticket would pretty much be a "gimme" in the November election.

This morning, Obama was asked whether he was concerned about the fact that the Democrats will be in a protacted battle for the nomination when the Republicans have essentially picked theirs already. No, he said. It might be a concern "if Senator's Clinton's supporters didn't like me, or my supporters didn't like her." But come November, he said, Democrats are going to support the Democratic nominee, whoever it is. It was a nice outreach and, we hope, a true statement.
