Thanks for posting the link to KELO news. I wasn't kept awake last night wondering how the primary vote would turn out, but it was nice to get up this morning and be able to get the results quickly and easily from your blog, when the SD vote wasn't exactly the top news in Virginia.

I did note that the turnout was still less than 160,000 people total. Not surprisingly, about twice as many people voted on the Democratic side as the Republican one, since the contest was long over with regard to the latter.

Too bad Hilary didn't make a more gracious concession speech. I'm not surprised at all, just a little disappointed.

On the other hand, since I'd never, ever vote for a pro-choice candidate half as liberal as Obama (or Clinton for that matter), the outcome of the primary means little to me personally.

Too bad also that my own favorite candidate, Republican senator Sam Brownback of Kansas wasn't even on the ballot since he dropped out so early on. Huckabee and even Romney got a few sympathy votes (or protest votes against McCain). For those who don't know him, Sen. Brownback is a devout, practicing Catholic (a convert from Protestantism too, i.e., a firm Catholic by conviction). And he well represents sensible, centrist, MidWestern values.
