MCCAIN TRIUMPHS IN HARD-FOUGHT FLORIDA PRIMARY  —  John McCain pulled out a win in a squeaker of a Republican presidential primary contest in Florida Tuesday, besting archrival Mitt Romney and leaving strong indications that Rudy Giuliani is preparing to abandon his race and back McCain.
John Podhoretz / Commentary:
Ridiculous Early Analysis  —  If the Florida results remain as close as the exit polls make it appear, nothing is going to be resolved tonight on the Republican side with the frontrunners.  If John McCain wins it by a point or two, he gets all the delegates and the headlines that he is the winner …

For Giuliani, a Dizzying Free-Fall  —  Perhaps he was living an illusion all along.  —  Rudolph W. Giuliani's campaign for the Republican nomination for president took impressive wing last year, as the former mayor wove the pain experienced by his city on Sept. 11, 2001, and his leadership that followed into national celebrity.

It's All Over  —  Assuming there is no shocking revelation or health issue, the GOP nomination is over.  Conservatives need to start practicing the phrase “Nominee presumptive John McCa....."  —  Sorry, I can't say it.  Not yet.  —  But it's true.  When the campaign comes here to Massachusetts …
