Kerry Keeps Rolling

Senator Kerry continued his winning ways yesterday, taking home victories in two southern primaries. Kerry took home 41% of the vote in Tennessee while Senator Edwards managed only 26%. Virginia was an even more thorough thrashing. In the open primary, Kerry garnered 52% of the votes to Edwards' mere 27%. Clark finished a disappointing third both primaries, prompting the retired general to drop out of the race. Clark's official announcement will come at 3 o'clock this afternoon.

Senator Edwards will likely remain on the ballot throughout all the primaries, but it will not be too much longer before he is no longer an actual contender. I look forward to that time. Once the Democratic candidate is clearly chosen, the media will probably discontinue coverage of the horse race and start paying some attention to Senator Kerry's suspect voting record in the Senate -- particularly in the areas of defense and foreign policy.
