All the major networks are now predicting Barack Obama will win in Wisconsin. That's nine caucus and primary wins in a row in case any of you Clinton supporters are counting.

Hawaii will make it 10 later on!

It will be interesting to see what the final margin is in Wisconsin.

I hope it's big so the Clinton campaign can't spin it.

I'm a little sad Huckabee's not getting any closer to McCain. It's sad that the republican party has abandoned conservative ideals to that extent. This nation used to be able to count on them for fiscal responsibility, but that changed sometime in the late-1970s, I guess. No more Goldwaters or Nixons.

Nixon was a fiscal conservative?
Not the last time I checked.

I'd call him one. If not as conservative as Goldwater or Ike, he was certainly more fiscally responsible than Reagan, and far more fiscally conservative than Shrub.

Here's an interesting site on the topic. It's not gospel, of course, but it puts things in perspective.

To be honest, I see very little delineation between Bush and Huckabee in terms of their political views. I think that's what seems to be the major factor in people not supporting Huckabee. That's my unbiased opinion.

My biased opinion is that Huckabee is a Republican and therefore not worth voting for

Go Obama!
