The delegate switch didn’t sit well with Romney
The bad news is that we’re not done with the debates. Hillary has accepted a “2/10 debate to be broadcast on This Week with George Stephanopoulos; A 2/27 CNN debate in OH and a 2/28 MSNBC debate in Houston,” and, according to Mark Penn on a conference call going on right now, a Fox News debate on 2/11. Remember, Fox News? The one Dems …
Romney campaign out-sending McCain about 4 to 1.
Clinton campaign out-sending Obama about 10 to 1.
RNC out-sending DNC by about 20 to 1.

• “The presidency has gone pop-cult. And to a large extent I blame the WGA.” [EW, h/t J.J.]
• How the McCain campaign got its groove back: “A bill for $900 worth of doughnuts gave way to a ban on what had always been a trademark of the McCain bus and a staple of the senator’s diet.” [Chicago Tribune]

And, uhm, yeah, Hillary got Perez Hilton. Way to turn out that demographic… whatever it is… Who gets the Bret Michael’s nod? WHAT ABOUT JASLENE?

n BREAKING: The hugely-read PerezHilton endorses HRC, saying “We watched
Say what you will about the Hillary campaign, but they sure know how to hit a send button. Nothing from Obama folks since last night. Since this morning, this from Clinton:

McCain and his staff are in the air right now, on their way to a rally in California before settling in at Phoenix’s Biltmore Hotel for what will, in all likelihood, be a victory party. If that victory is not the nomination-sealing event they want it to be, will it be because he should have gotten to California sooner?
McCain spent the …
Romney and McCain’s virtual letter bombs, including:
“Governor Romney’s attack on Bob Dole is disgraceful, and Governor Romney should apologize. Bob Dole is a war hero who has spent his life in service to this nation and nobody has worked harder to build the Republican Party. Bob Dole deserves the respect of every American and

The McCain staff would rather put Romney down with a bullet than strangle him to death. Also: Germany!
(Sorry, this Twitter thing has me thinking in nano-posts….)
Yesterday in Nashville, Mitt Romney was losing his voice. This morning in Charleston, West Virginia, he was losing his ability to speak. “By the way, you will hear me saying the wrong word on occasion,” he told a group of Republican delegates, who had gathered for the state’s nominating convention. “The reason is lack of …
As they gather at Rockefeller Center Plaza this morning for a final New York rally, before they fly to San Diego and end up in Phoenix, the McCain people have some worries about today.
