Obama surges past Clinton in Democratic race | Reuters

Obama surges past Clinton in Democratic race | Reuters: "MILWAUKEE (Reuters) - Barack Obama has surged past Hillary Clinton to open a big national lead in the Democratic presidential race, according to a Reuters/Zogby poll released on Wednesday.

Obama also leads Republican front-runner John McCain in a potential November election match-up while Clinton trails McCain, enhancing Obama's argument he is the Democrat with the best shot at capturing the White House."

Zogby has Obama out in front by 14 points nationally--52% to 14%. I don't know...Zogby is notorious for sometimes being way, way off, especially recently with Obama-Clinton. He had Obama out in front by 13 points in New Hampshire, and then Clinton won by 3 points. He had Obama winning in California, and Clinton won. So I wonder if this is an accurate poll. However, after beating Clinton like a rented mule in Wisconsin yesterday, it is clear that Obama is the front runner and the favorite to win the nomination. Clinton (both Clintons) can be expected to go to Defcon 5 and burn the convention and the party to the ground if that's what it takes to win the nomination. I don't expect any gracious, early, Romney-style "let's unite the party" exit until the Clintons have tried every single club in their golf bag.
