John McCain May Be Real Winner in Democratic Primaries

With victories in Ohio, Rhode Island and Texas, Hillary Clinton has made it clear that the Democratic nomination will be no guarantee for Barack Obama. The primary voters came out in force for the former First Lady and Senator from New York and helped her to avoid what could have been a mortal blow to her campaign for the White House. In sharp contrast were the Republican primaries which were a clean sweep for John McCain and brought the withdrawal from the race of Mike Huckabee.

Early in the evening Barack Obama won his twelfth consecutive primary in Vermont and some thought the evening might mark the end of the line for Hillary Clinton as well but as the night progressed it became clear that despite the Vermont victory this primary Tuesday was not going to be an overall victory party for Obama. There were hints earlier in the week that Obama’s campaign suspected that they would not lock up the nomination with Ohio and Texas when they began focusing their advertising spending on Mississippi and made plans for campaign appearances there in preparation for the March 11th primary.

For political watchers April 22nd now becomes the date to circle on their calendars. The Pennsylvania primaries now hold a much greater significance to the outcome of the Democratic Party nomination than was previously expected. Many had presumed that the race would be over by the end of February’s Super Tuesday but few could have predicted the direction this contest would take. Many party officials have noted some uneasiness with the direction the race has taken because of the tone of the candidates’ rhetoric in recent days and what that could mean for the November general election. The extended primary season means more time with the Democratic candidates focusing their attention on each other instead of directing their criticisms at the presumptive GOP nominee John McCain.

After the withdrawal of Mike Huckabee from the race there is no question that John McCain will be the Republican nominee and that means his campaign for the general election has begun while the Democrats are still sorting out who will be their nominee. This in many political insiders’ views gives the distinct advantage to the Republican nominee. While the Democrats are still fighting with one another he will be able to campaign unhindered by as much direct confrontation with the opposing candidate. It’s anyone’s guess how this will play out in the general election but for now there are likely none happier with the uncertainty in the Democratic Party than the Republicans hoping to retain control of the White House for another four years.

Whether Obama or Clinton gets the Democratic nod the Party will likely need to do some quick fence mending in order to succeed in the November election. With John McCain now running unopposed for the GOP nomination you can bet that he will take full advantage of the divisions within the Democratic Party in his quest for the White House.

Have You Been Downsized Due to Outsourcing?
