As the National Political Press Corps whipsaws between Clinton and Obama while Senator McCain meets with world leaders and receives the endorsement of the likes of Nancy Reagan this can only accrue to the benefit of the GOP nominee.

As my debate partner, Bob Beckel, pointed out on Fox this morning, "This is only March and there is a long way to go to November."

He's right. But the only way to stop the slugfest between Clinton and Obama is to have someone convince one of them they should accept defeat.

Obama is leading in both the delegate count and the total popular vote. He's not getting out.

Hillary comes from the Johann Goethe theory of politics: "What does not kill me makes me stronger," and she is far from dead and so, by definition, is getting stronger.

The polling in Pennsylvania shows her leading Barack by between 12 and 26 percentage points which means the fight for the Democratic nomination is likely to go on for months to come.

Hillary's imagined attack in Bosnia is (to misquote yet another movie) the stuff Republican dreams are made of.
