Obama, McCain Cement Frontrunner Status

By  | 

Washington (AP) It's now 10 straight wins for Barack Obama in the fight for the democratic presidential nod, while John McCain is moving ever closer to the republican nomination.

Obama easily defeated Hillary Rodham Clinton in the Hawaii caucuses, hours after winning the Wisconsin democratic primary. McCain took the GOP contests in Wisconsin and Washington state.

Obama told supporters in Houston that the change he's seeking remains “months and miles away.” He pledged to bring an end to the Iraq war next year.

McCain spoke to a crowd in Ohio, pledging that he will make sure Americans ``are not deceived by an eloquent but empty call for change.''

Next up on March 4th are Ohio and Texas -- and 370 convention delegates. Vermont and Rhode Island also vote that day
