If you're looking at the Democratic primary expectantly, hoping for some glimpse of light at the end of this seemingly-never-ending nominating process, the past 10 days indicate that any far-off glow may come from the still-distant fiery implosion of one of these campaigns. Obama appears to have weathered the worst week of his presidential run. He emerged limping, but not completely hobbled, and managed to end it with the flourish of a big endorsement from Bill Richardson.

In what was a bad week for everyone, Obama has maintained his advantage in the face of embarrassing revelations about his former pastor. Since he would have had to deal with the fallout from comments by Rev. Jeremiah Wright sooner or later, God seems to have rewarded Senator Obama for all his years of loyal church attendance with the providence of Geraldine Ferraro's foolhardy comments about his candidacy. How awesomely ironic that just when he needed some luck from above, she came out and called him a lucky bastard.

Hillary Clinton can't be happy that in the wake of the Wright scandal, Obama's speech had commentators across several networks comparing him to Martin Luther King, Jr. But, her biggest worry at this point should be that many in the media, such as the omnipresent editorial staff at The Politico, have begun to paint this race as completely un-winnable for her.
