    Primaries go to South

    Kerry rolls on..............

    Edwards and Clark shared nasty political attacks - Kerry has a modest lead over Edwards and Clark in Tennessee and Virginia which holds primaries on Tuesday, Februrary 11th.

    Howard Dean whose political life has comes down to a must win Wisconsin state is also trailing badly in Wisconsin polls not only against Kerry but Edwards and Clark - tsk tsk tsk tsk tsk tsk the result of Al "the sore loser" Gore endorsement.

      So what happens to all the endorsements which were rolling for Dean pre-Iowa. When will those people switch to back the new winning horse?

        Kerry is probably hoping that Al Gore endorses George Bush.

          Kerry wins Tennessee(41.5%) and Virginia(51.2%) state primaries - a clean sweep. Edwards finished 2nd - and Wesley Clark is considering to drop out the race.

          John Kerry vanquished his Dixie-bred rivals in Virginia and Tennessee on Tuesday, all but unstoppable in his march toward the Democratic nomination with a Southern sweep that extended his dominance to every region of the country.

          Americans are voting for change East and West, North and now in the South," Kerry declared to the roar of supporters in Fairfax, Va., chanting, "Kerry! Kerry!"


          John Edwards Wesley Clark and Howard Dean clung quixotically to the hope that Kerry would stumble on his own or by scandal, but party leaders began pressing for the nomination fight to end.

          Kerry was pocketing about half the vote in Virginia with Edwards of North Carolina a poor second and Clark of Arkansas a far-distant third. Kerry crushed Edwards and Clark in Tennessee.


          With two poor finishes, Clark considered dropping out. The key to his decision was the closely fought battle for second in Tennessee against Edwards, aides said.



          Dean, the fallen front-runner, finished in single digits in Virginia and Tennessee, the latter the home state of political benefactor Al Gore. Dean had already retreated with his staggering campaign to Wisconsin, site of a Feb. 17 primary.
