Senator Barack Obama cast his vote in his hometown of Hyde Park, IL today, quipping: “It was close but in the end I went for Obama.” He then paused to answer a couple of questions for reporters.

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?

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
