- At this point, should California just change it's name to "The Big One?"
- Rachel Maddow clearly demonstrates the difference between New Analysts (bloggers, netroots, "Reading Daily Kos is like reading the newspaper a month in advance.") and Old Analysts (retired politicians, Broderites, etc.). Look closely at the screen when they pan across "the panel." You'll see Rachel is the only one sitting with a computer in front of her. The rest have paper. (And it's a Mac at that!) She watches this stuff the way the many of us do, with one eye on the television, and the other on the computer. No wonder hers is the best analysis of the night.
- Mike Barnicle on Barack Obama. "He is in the process of putting a smile on America's face. I find it stunning." It's nice to be inspired by our leaders, isn't it?
- I was lucky enough to get two and a half hours of TV time to satiate my political appetite, but my wife deserves to get to watch something before heading to bed, so I'm turning the remote over to her and switching to the online MSNBC feed. I love that the feed fills the adbreaks with other stories, like the one on training medics for Iraq right now.
- Fun things online - election results threads on RaisingKaine.
- Fun things online II - Youth Vote Refresher Course from Future Majority, useful for pundits thinking about spinning commentary on youth voting tonight.
- Sheesh, tornadoes in Tennessee in Feburary on Super Tuesday? I'll refrain from trying to read any symbolism or allegory into that.

Super Tuesday Coverage Observations
I am watching MSNBC tonight. Keith Olbermann is by far the best and most entertaining political anchor on television. Here are some running observations from the night.
