The Warrior King  —  Bush just endorsed McCain and sounded like he's on a meth bender.  He couldn't let McCain have the spotlight.  —  If I were McCain I'd be hoping that's the last time I have to appear with Junior during this campaign.  He's a reminder of everything people loathe about Republicans.

FINAL THOUGHTS  —  The big headlines tonight are now in focus.  Hillary takes three of four primaries, and the two big states.  Yet the delegate spread didn't budge.  The possibilities seem to range from a high-single digit pick up for Hillary to the possibility of a net pick up for Obama.
