Dems Out of Ballots

Drudge reports that the Democrats have run out of ballots, indicating the turnout on their side is huge.

That's not good news for John McCain, who's counting on Independents (who can vote in either primary) to sweep him to victory. As for whether the increased Democrat turnout bodes ill for Republicans in the fall, it's just too early to say.

After all, as even the Clintons note, Barack Obama has so far received very little vetting from the national press. It will be interesting to see if public opinion changes at all once Barack starts getting some scrutiny. So far, of course, he's had to do little besides present himself a viable, attractive alternative to a divisive, controversial and widely-disliked First Lady who's tried to run as an incumbent.

But soon, all that may change.
