Hillary Clinton Cleaning Up in the Northeast


WASHINGTON D.C. — Hillary Clinton has won Massachusetts, New York, and New Jersey so far tonight. New Jersey and New York were easy wins for Clinton, while Massachusetts was more hotly contested. Clinton consistently held a lead there, but it was shrunk in recent weeks by the endorsements of Governor Deval Patrick and Senators John Kerry and Ted Kennedy. An impressive win for Clitnon in the Bay State.

One point about McCain’s victories that I’ll admit I stole from the MSNBC broadcast crew: all of his wins tonight are coming in blue states. Chris Matthews and Joe Scarborough seem to think this means horrible things for McCain’s chances in the general election. I don’t really get it.
