Mike Allen / The Politico:
Obama claims delegate lead  —  In a surprise twist after a chaotic Super Tuesday, Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) passed Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) in network tallies of the number of delegates the candidates racked up last night.  —  Clinton was portrayed in many news accounts …

Mark Murray / MSNBC:
FIRST THOUGHTS: A DEM SPLIT DECISION  —  From Chuck Todd, Mark Murray, and Domenico Montanaro  —  *** A split decision: The Clinton and Obama campaigns engaged in a furious game of spin before Super Tuesday, but Obama might have put it best when he said on TODAY and Morning Joe yesterday that it would end up being a split decision.

THE DEMOCRATIC RACE FROM HERE.  —  Now that the dust is settling …
Harold Meyerson / Washington Post:
The Repudiation of Rove  —  John McCain had a surprising but pleasant evening last night — watching Mitt Romney go down to defeat in nearly every contest and encountering a newly victorious but ultimately unnominatable Mike Huckabee all across the Bible Belt.

Charles Hurt / New York Post:
ONCE JOHN WINS, HE'LL MAKE A LEFT  —  RUNNING as a conserva tive, John McCain rolled up huge victories last night in New York, New Jersey and beyond.  —  But if history is any guide, the McCain we've seen of late on the campaign trail is the most conservative McCain we'll ever see.
Mark R. Levin / The Corner:
One-Legged Stool  —  I wonder how many of us believe that if John McCain is the nominee, which is looking more likely, whether he will win New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, and California.  This was the Giuliani strategy.  He's losing the conservative vote in virtually every state other than New York and New Jersey.
Stanley Kurtz / The Corner:
Staying Home is Not an Option
The New Republic:
Who Won Super Tuesday?  —  It's hard to say, but if you put a gun in my head, I'd say John McCain and (very slightly) Hillary Clinton, but the elections revealed weaknesses in McCain and in both of the leading Democratic candidates.  McCain blunted Mitt Romney's challenge, but he failed consistently to win over conservative voters.

Ezra Klein / American Prospect:
SUPERDELEGATES.  —  I really, really hope the Democratic primary doesn't come down to superdelegates — the privileged class of delegate that gets to vote however they want, and were created to ensure that party elites didn't lose too much control over the process.

The Hill:
Romney to meet with congressional supporters  —  Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R), coming off a disappointing Super Tuesday, will meet with his congressional supporters Thursday afternoon, sources told The Hill.  —  Romney will meet with the members who endorsed his run at the Capitol Hill Club …

Faiz / Think Progress:
Buchanan: John McCain ‘Will Make Cheney Look Like Gandhi’  —  On the NBC Today Show, liberal radio host Rachel Maddow, conservative pundit Pat Buchanan, and Democratic strategist Paul Begala discussed the importance of “change” in the upcoming election.  Voters want a “clean break from Bush,” argued Maddow.
Hugh Hewitt / Townhall.com:
Seven Reasons To Support The GOP's Nominee  —  As of this morning, McCain has earned 615 delegates and 4,220,296 votes; Romney 268 delegates and 3,497,341 votes, and Huckabee 169 delegates and 2,232,530 votes.  —  Senator McCain has a clear path to the nomination, Romney a very uphill battle …

NRCC probe scares GOP  —  Top House Republicans were told in recent days that a former employee of their campaign committee may have forged an official audit during the contentious 2006 election cycle and that they should brace for the possibility that an unfolding investigation …
Greg Sargent / TPM Election Central:
Obama Directly Attacks Bill's Presidency, Blames It For Massive Dem Losses  —  In what may be Obama's most direct and aggressive criticism of Bill Clinton's presidency yet, the Obama campaign dropped a new mailer just before Super Tuesday that blasts “the Clintons” for wreaking massive losses …

Cara DeGette / Colorado Confidential:
Ted Haggard Quits New Life ‘Restoration Team’  —  Technically, it only took three weeks of intensive “restoration” a full year ago to make Ted Haggard a “complete heterosexual.”  But on Tuesday night, the new pastor of the Colorado Springs megachurch that Haggard founded has announced …
Mark Steyn / The Corner:
The Morning After  —  I think John O'Sullivan is right.  There was an explicit anti-Romney vote in the South.  A mere month ago, in the wake of Iowa and New Hampshire, I received a ton of e-mails from southern readers saying these pansy northern states weren't the “real” conservative heartland …
Kathryn Jean Lopez / The Corner:
Kumbya Convo  —  Mary Matalin had some creative thinking for John McCain this morning, in conversation with NRO, based on the idea that “McCain still failing to win conservatives anywhere, even where he wins.”  —  A “trust but verify” strategy for McCain might include:
