Fast forward 4 years and it looks as though the Democratic race will hinge on the outcomes in Ohio and Texas – and even if there is not a decisive outcome, the question may well be whether the Democrats really want the race to go on to Pennsylvania in late April.

Make or Break Tuesday, Super Tuesday 2, whatever you call it – the Republican race may see the Coup de Grace, as John McCain could get over the top and with a sweep of the two big states, plus Rhode Island and Vermont.

… and the latest from TechPresident includes a report on some research or should that be subterfuge from The Nation, who found that the John McCain campaign was the only major campaign to allow negative comments from users on their official blog.
