Super, super Tuesday

Early exit poll numbers are unofficial, they're rumor, but they haven't been too far off on previous primary days. So far, things look darn good for Kerry from the early polls -- as leaked to and from news organizations -- as you can see from this and this. Georgia could be close -- if these numbers can be trusted. But maybe that's just hoping for some excitement tonight. The exit polls in Georgia show a Kerry win, but not an embarrassingly stunning one. That's as good as Edwards seems to be doing right now. Georgia's polls close at 7 p.m. ET, so we'll know soon enough.

There's already speculation about whether Edwards will press on after tonight, even if he does eke out a state or two. On March 9, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Texas will hold primaries. But if Edwards can't win Georgia, he may not bother with next week's round.

Here's a sweet story in the making. According to the leaked exit polls, Howard Dean's ahead in Vermont by 30 points. Dean's supporters have rallied voters to come out and show their appreciation for the former governor by striving to give him a win, and delegates, of course, even though he's not running anymore. On Blog for America, Dean supporters, including his longtime aide Kate O'Connor exchange proud stories of what it felt like to cast a vote in Vermont and elsewhere for the former governor.
