Another round of primaries

Another round of primaries. At this point, Kerry, Dean, Edwards, Clark, Sharpton and Kucinich remain in the run for the Democratic nomination. Lieberman just dropped out, to my relief. He had 25 delegates, so I'm wondering to which candidate those will go. Kerry leads with 244; Dean has 121, and Edwards, 102. (Source: CNN)

I was not at all surprised that Edwards won South Carolina. I think my mom said she voted for him. Actually, come to think of it, maybe I should start looking to my mom as a predictor of election wins. At least the last two that I can think of, she's voted the way the election went.

I'll be curious to see who wins Georgia. Now I'm wondering when Kucinich and Sharpton will drop; each may wait until after primaries in their respective home states of Ohio and New York.

I read recently that the main Libertarian candidate, Gary Nolan, has received quite a few campaign donations through Amazon.com, second at the time I looked only to Dem-front runner Kerry. In other words, he's ahead of the rest of the field in terms of donations. I find that kind of encouraging, that people are willing to support Libertarian concepts monetarily. It also indicates that despite the lack of coverage in the press, some will seek out alternatives for themselves. However, I know full well that a vote with the wallet doesn't necessarily translate into a vote in the election.
