Headline of the Day, courtesy of CNN.com: McCain becomes front-runner.
But McCain's rise to the top of the Republican heap is causing a fair amount of consternation in conservative circles, which have been blasting McCain for months on immigration and other issues.
Driving in this morning, for example, we heard the always-cranky radio yapper, Neal Boortz, and a disgruntled caller take McCain apart for numerous transgressions of the party line.
Despite McCain's troubles with the right-wing faithful, we see new reports that the Arizona senator is now leading in the polls in the Sooner state, where we've been predicting a Huckabee win. The former Arkansas governor once looked to be the GOP's best bet in Oklahoma.
On the other hand, we hear that Huck is low on cash, which doesn't bode well for his prospects in Oklahoma and other Super Tuesday states.
