The Wisconsin primary goes to Barack Obama and John McCain — both got about 55%, to Clinton’s 43 and Huckabee’s 37 respectively (Ron Paul got his usual 4).

That’s Obama’s ninth victory in a row. Clinton’s chances of reversing this tide are looking slimmer all the time.

On that note, both winners seem to be gearing up for the general. McCain said, “I will fight every moment of every day in this campaign to make sure Americans are not deceived by an eloquent but empty call for change.” Fight that hope, Mac! Fight it!
