Sen. Hillary Clinton mounted a surge in Ohio and Rhode Island last night and appeared poised to rescue her faltering candidacy as the bruising Democratic contest remained a deadlocked mathematical dogfight for delegate votes.
Clinton was the projected winner in Rhode Island and held a solid lead in early results from Ohio. Illinois Sen. Barack Obama was the projected winner in Vermont and was also ahead in Texas. The divergent results in the crucial four-state battle further muddles the Democratic contest as the candidates battle for momentum and fund-raising dollars.
Meanwhile, the Republican Party began to close ranks behind GOP nominee John McCain, giving him an organizing boost as the Democratic contest remains in disarray. - Boston Herald
To put it simply, I do not view John McCain as a good Republican candidate.
