Is there life after Super Tuesday?

 Sens. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are fighting for the Democratic nomination.

(CNN) - Is Super Tuesday the end?

To paraphrase Winston Churchill, it is not the end, but it is more than the end of the beginning. It is perhaps the beginning of the end.

But with only two or three major candidates left in each party, and with more than half of the country voting, surely both races will be decided on February 5.

Maybe. Maybe not.

    Your comment is awaiting moderation.
    CNN Let's not wait in moderation all day.
    Why aren't you reporting that Hillary Clinton is doing push polls in CA? For those of you who do not remember…push polls are a Karl Rove invention to make dirty accusations against opponent during a "poll" Great job Clinton camp!

    I'm an Obama guy, but the fact that Californians have been able to send it ballots for a month makes it harder for him to win the state. :( It's conceivable that he could lose the state and still win more delegates (which is exactly what happened in Nevada) but Hillary and the press would still spin this as a victory for Hillary.

    If Obama was so against the WAR, then why did he vote to fund the war? Dennis Kucinich voted against authorizing the war in Iraq and against funding its continuation. Why? Because like every other politician, Obama knew it would be political suicide for him to vote against funding. But the media lets him off the hook and allows him to say he has always been against the war, even if his votes don't support his claim.

    Collective Will: do you think that simply by posting 7 of a total 29 comments that makes your voice "collective"? I suggest you change your name to "clueless".

    If Obama wins the Democratic nomination, the Republicans will be VERY, VERY,VERY Happy. The Republicans are just waiting for this opportunity! THEY CAN BEAT OBAMA EASILY. Yes, EASILY!

    If Hillary doesn't get a substantial lead or momentum after Super Tuesday, I think Obama will win. Most of the states that vote after Tuesday are southern and midwestern states where Obama will have a much stronger showing. He will start winning states and it will snowball.

    There is a breaking story regarding black conservative leaders supporting Mike Huckabee. Since you're reporting heavily on other candidates endorsements, please don't forget this one. More information can be found on mikehuckabee.com.
    Thank You. This is very important as this group is strongly urging that Mike Huckabee stay in the race (as opposed to others who demand he drop out for the benefit of Mitt Romney).

    Why are we in such a mess? 1/ since 1949, Israel created hatred among the muslims. 2/ The Muslims revenged with 911. 3/ Bush listened to the wrong advice and invaded Iraq. 4/ Printing money for the war. 5/ When my 3 grand children grow up. They have to pay for that forever! 6/ Then, can wars be avoided? The answer is NO, it is too late. Just ask Israel. 7/ If the next president has to report to Israel, then don't expect the troop to come home! Which candidate is that? Clinton or Obama? Just take a look of the advicers each one has , you could have the answer yourself. dancewu(dot)net

    In CNNs analysis of election results in Georgia. The results are simple.
    All democrats in the south know how republicans operate. They vote for
    weakest candidate in dem. primary and then vote Republican i n
    general election. This also holds true in Tennessee. (most republicans
    do this in every election).
