ELECTION RESULTS....Here are the final finishes in today's primaries:

  • Kerry: 1,1,1,1,1,2,3

  • Clark: 1,2,2,2,4,4,5

  • Edwards: 1,2,2,3,4,4,4

  • Dean: 3,3,3,3,4,5,5

Earlier in the evening it looked like it was going to be a pretty dismal showing for Clark, but in the end he did about as well as Edwards and I imagine that means he'll stay in the race. With Lieberman bowing out, that makes it a four-man race from here on out.

I have to say that I have mixed feelings about these results. I'm glad to see that Clark rallied enough to stay in the running, but at the same time I suspect that he and Edwards appeal to many of the same people and are therefore splitting their share of the vote. Since I prefer both Edwards and Clark to the other two, I wish one of them would drop out and let the other give Kerry and Dean a serious run.

But which one? Aye, there's the rub....
