No Primacy in the US Primaries
A nice editorial comment by the Financial Times regarding the current state of the Republican and Democratic caucuses as they head into this weekend and Super Tuesday (February 5th). In sum, both races are up for grabs. Democrats are split between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. While Republicans are split between John McCain, Mitt Romney, and Rudy Giuliani. As the events leading up to Super Tuesday are likely to foreshadow the eventual nominee, even that may be in dispute, as there could be no clear front runner even then. With certainty, both races will be very closely watched race and it is certainly worth paying attention to.
