Thought I'd take a look to see how things are going. The first column next to the candidate's name is the total number of delegates for that candidate so far. The second is the percentage of the delegates chosen so far that the candidate has gotten. The third column shows how many future delegates that candidate needs to reach the magic number of 2,161, and the fourth column tells us what percentage of the future delegates the candidate needs to get.

Kerry 608 56.6% 1553 47.8%
Dean 201 18.7% 1960 60.3%
Edwards 190 17.7% 1971 60.7%
Clark 57 5.3% 2104 64.8%
Sharpton 16 1.5% 2145 66.0%
Kucinich 2 0.2% 2159 66.5%

Kerry's obviously well out front and really just needs to avoid a big mistake. Edwards needs almost 61% of the remaining delegates, which is quite a bit better than he's been doing so far. Of course, this assumes that all of Clark's and Dean's delegates stay put. Clark has endorsed Kerry; if his delegates are added to Kerry's total he'd only need about 46% of the remainder.
I am getting amused at how predictable the left is today. If you bring up Iraq as a necessary part of the war on terror, they will immediately start in about how 15 of the 19 hijackers were Saudis. If you comment on how Saddam's regime was evil they will bring up the fact that Donald Rumsfeld shook hands with him 20 years ago, as if that was a good argument against deposing him.
The A-Rod Deal:

Not only do the Yankees get the best player in baseball, but they get the Texas Rangers to pay $60 million of his salary. Ouch!

The decision to keep Jeter at shortstop and move A-Rod to third is a tough one to defend except in terms of team
chemistry. Rodriguez is far the superior defensive shortstop. I don't think Jeter has the arm for third base, so the obvious move would be to switch him to second.

The Kerry story seems to be fizzling a bit, but some things just don't make sense. For example, consider the claim that Alex Polier dated Kerry's finance chief. The obvious question is why would they then let this story percolate all weekend?

Two possibilities:

1. The finance guy was married. (So what? I find it hard to believe that Kerry would jeopardize his campaign just to protect a staffer).

2. The fact that she was dating the finance guy was part of the scandal (that is, they were involved in a threesome).

Cited for Breaking the Christmas in Cambodia story (at Kerry Haters):

Hugh Hewitt: KerryHaters was on this story a long time ago. How could the elite media not have asked these questions before now?

Ankle-Biting Pundits: Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.
