Hillary Clinton stormed closer to the Democratic presidential nomination with her landslide victory in the South Carolina primary Saturday. Today’s Super Tuesday primaries across the South may be the coup de grâce for Bernie Sanders.

Sanders’ anti-establishment platform still draws sizable numbers, but unless he works a miracle today Clinton will have firmly taken the reins. Doing such will permit her to bank contributions and build her war chest to monumental proportions.

She and President Obama have been favorite targets of Republican candidates, although if Donald Trump prevails some may take a pass on voting in the fall election.
