John Cole / Balloon Juice:
Obama takes The Lead  —  Last night, after I claimed Obama was the big winner for the Democrats, many of you dismissed me: … No. Obama was the big winner: … Obama won more states, won more delegates, improved his numbers with key groups, widened his lead among minority voters, and over-all, outperformed Hillary.

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.

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.
Marc Ambinder:

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 …
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.
Ezra Klein / American Prospect:
