A mighty wind

Re "Dixie win bodes well for Democrats," May 15

The media focus on whether Hillary Rodham Clinton voters will support Barack Obama or vice versa misses the real story in this election cycle: the unprecedented number of primary voters for Democrats. Even before John McCain sewed up the nomination, Democrats were outpolling Republicans. In all three special elections in what were solid GOP districts, Democrats won handily. There is a mighty wind of change sweeping across the country, and Republicans don't have a storm shelter.
