No Mass Exodus

Perhaps I was a bit hasty in my assumptions that women voters wouldn't throw their support behind Obama, but it appears that that is just what seems to be happening. Since Clinton bowed out and put her weight behind Obama, his support from older women has grown, while McCain's appears to be slipping.

I'm encouraged by this number for many reasons, but the biggest of course is that there has not been the mass exodus from the party that many anger Clinton supporters threatened. The drop in McCain support has got to be troubling for the GOP. McCain had three months to capitalize on the Dem in-fighting and did not seize that opportunity.

Now, it's time for Obama to select Wes Clark and make McCain irrelevant.
