Super Tuesday...Will We Know Who The Nominees Will Be?

First Week Of February…Just Super!

Americans are flushed with a super abundance of super events this week!
Sunday's Super Bowl in Phoenix,which really was super this year, drew record TV audiences.
The underdog New York Giants, (who actually play in New Jersey) beat the near perfect new England Patriots in a super upset.
Super Bowl MVP Eli Manning made a couple of super throws and turned the game around.
Manning hit David Tyree in the fourth quarter to put the Giants temporarily ahead. New England came back and scored late in the period and it seemed they might complete their super season.
But Manning whipped his Giants back down the field and completed the amazing throw to Plaxico Burress who made a super catch and the Giants won the Super Bowl!
Now it is Super Tuesday and this is the biggest day of the Presidential campaign as more states hold their primaries on one day than ever before. This is the closest thing we have ever seen to a national primary.
At this point the races have begun to crystallize as candidates continue to fall along the way side.
Giuliani has thrown his support to John McCain. Will that make a difference? We’ll just have to wait till the results come in tonight. Huckabee is looking for his miracle in the bible belt states but he is plunging fast. Ron Paul? Who’s he? His surprising early support has faded after people took a close look at his history and some of his strange ideas.
Super Tuesday will weed out the pretenders and shake out the survivors.
Things are looking pretty good for the Democrats overall. G.W. Bush, Cheney, Rove et al have given most of the United States “Republican Fatigue.” You know they are in trouble when Rush Limbaugh and his brand of bloviating blowhards viciously attack John McCain as a “liberal!”
Of course the Democrats can still blow it. Looming over their party is the dark shadow of Ralph Nader whose ascetic glare is pointed in their direction.
Will Rogers once said “I do not belong to an organized political party. I am a Democrat!”
Football fans have nothing over political junkies who revel in all of the excitement and suspense of Super Tuesday!
What a week! For many Americans it is just “Super!”
