Waiting for Gore  —  It feels official: Barack Obama has momentum.  He won a resounding victory in South Carolina.  He just posted another astonishing fundraising total.  Gallup reports that he's pulled to within four points of Hillary Clinton.  And Ted Kennedy's endorsement Monday had the feel of history about it.

MoveOn Endorsement Throws Progressive Weight  —  Behind Barack Obama  —  3.2 Million Members Nationwide Mobilize to Get Out the Progressive Vote for Senator Obama  —  Group Has Over 1.7 Million Members In Super Tuesday States  —  In a resounding vote today, MoveOn.org Political Action's …

Paul Krugman / New York Times:
The Edwards Effect  —  So John Edwards has dropped out of the race for the presidency.  By normal political standards, his campaign fell short.  —  But Mr. Edwards, far more than is usual in modern politics, ran a campaign based on ideas.  And even as his personal quest for the White House faltered …
Paul Krugman:
Obama does Harry and Louise, again  —  The Obama campaign sends out an ugly mailer.  Sorry, but this is just destructive — like the Obama plan, the Clinton plan offers subsidies to lower-income families.  And BO himself has conceded that he might have to penalize people who don't buy insurance until they need care.
Gallup:
Gallup Daily: Tracking Election 2008  —  Based on daily polling from Jan. 29-31, 2008  —  PRINCETON, NJ — Gallup Poll Daily tracking shows Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama as close as they have been since the polling program started at the beginning of 2008.
