The fat lady that Barack Obama had waiting in the wings Tuesday night didn’t even get the chance to clear her throat before Hillary Clinton sent her packing with a plane ticket home and a hotel reservation in Denver for August.

Obama didn’t seal the deal and drive Clinton from the Democratic Presidential race. Instead, she won three out of four primary races and staged yet another improbable comeback.

Before the polls closed, pundits wondered when Democratic leaders would descend on the Senator from New York and convince her to withdraw “for the good of the party.”

Clinton wins 3 of 4; McCain clinches

Hillary Rodham Clinton scored three victories in a night of revival that denied Barack Obama a ripe opportunity to drive her from the Democratic presidential race. Clarity came only to the Republican side, where John McCain made the nomination his own.

Clinton won the big races in Ohio and Texas, as well as Rhode Island, to break her costly losing streak, and asserted, “This nation’s coming back and so is this campaign.” But Obama came away with a large share of delegates, too, in counting that continued Wednesday, meaning he’s got a lead that’s tough to overcome.

Clinton takes Ohio; McCain seals nomination

John McCain clinched the Republican presidential nomination on Tuesday and Democrat Hillary Clinton won a crucial showdown with rival Barack Obama in Ohio to breathe new life into her campaign and prolong the Democratic race.

McCain’s four big victories in Vermont, Ohio, Texas and Rhode Island drove his last major rival, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, out of the race and gave McCain more than the 1,191 delegates needed to win the nomination.

President George W. Bush will greet the Arizona senator at the White House on Wednesday and back his campaign.

“I am very pleased to note that tonight, my friends, we have won enough delegates to claim with confidence, humility and a sense of great responsibility that I will be the Republican nominee for president of the United States,” McCain, 71, told supporters in Dallas.
