2008: A Tsunami Year for Dems?

A large part of the discussion on this year's primaries thus far has centered on the contest between Hillary and Barack. We progressives are extremely fortunate to have two exceptionally strong candidates to argue about! (Hi, Mary Ellen! ;). . .) That being said, and personal choices aside, the really astonishing numbers are the total votes cast
by party.

Here are the numbers for just the 19 states where both parties had primaries on Super Tuesday:

Obama/Clinton voters: 14,460,149
McCain/Romney/Huckabee voters: 8,367,694

Or, 73% more Democratic voters than Republican voters.

It would appear that progressives are highly energized, extremely motivated, and attracting new voters and crossover voters at an astounding rate. In other words, in 2006 we knocked on the door - this year we're gonna knock the sum-bitch down!
