The Democratic Primary Contest Is Now Over

Hillary Clinton has decisively, by around five percentage points, beaten Senator Bernie Sanders to win the Nevada caucuses.

It is by enough that there will not be a repeat of 2008 where Clinton won the caucuses, but Obama got more delegates.

With this win, which wasn't a real surprise, Bernie Sanders' campaign is done.

He will continue until Super Tuesday, but from this point on, Hillary Clinton will run the table on South Carolina next Saturday, and on Super Tuesday on March 1.

Sanders, as much as I like him, was never in it to win the nomination. He was there to get the base of the party out and to prep Hillary Clinton for the fall campaign.

With the Republicans such a mess, she should win in November and become the first woman president in American history.
