The race goes on...

NEW YORK (CNN) - Months ago, “Super Tuesday” was supposed to be the finish line in the race for the Democratic and Republican presidential nominations. With the dust still settling, it looks more like the halfway point for Democrats – and the Republican contest may not have entered the home stretch either.

Most of the candidates have reason to wake up with smiles on their faces this morning. John McCain, who won California and New York, cemented his status as the GOP frontrunner; Mike Huckabee swept four Southern states on a shoestring budget; Hillary Clinton strung together wins from the Northeast to the South and capped it off with a win in California; Barack Obama walked away with more than a dozen wins. Only Mitt Romney found little consolation in last night’s results.
