My data is far from scientific but from reading more blogs and comments than is probably healthy but here is an observation: there is a very hard and mean rift quickly growing in the Democratic party. In places where comments are usually very civil and engaged, people are swearing off the other candidate. Writers who have been repeating how proud they are of the democratic party and all the candidates are now openly threatening to not vote for president in 2008. "Repugnant" is the word of the day.
So we will see how things shake out, but John McCain will gain the remaining delegates to become the official Republican nominee today. And he can only be liking what he sees.
