South Carolina (R), Nevada, and more

While John McCain won the South Carolina Republican Primary by a significant margin, he does appear to be out of the wood yet, having done worse with many groups than he did in 2000, but benefiting from a larger, more fractured field.

While most news agencies are reporting that Hillary Clinton won the Nevada Democratic Caucus, Barack Obama is actually likely to win more delegates, which makes this caucus a bit of draw (which of course is what the candidates themselves asked for in a debate last week). That said, if one gives Obama the win over Clinton on a national delegate basis, then one has to give Clinton second place in Iowa over Edwards by the same logic.

Finally, Frank Rich continues to skewer the Republican candidates across the board.
