On the GOP side of things: Mike Huckabee has finally dropped out of the race. In a lengthy, unnecessary speech Huck bowed out after Sen. John McCain clinched the nomination by passing the threshold for delegates needed to clinch the ticket.
President Bush has invited McCain to the White House for a private lunch today and will publicly endorse him as the Republican presidential nominee. Ninjas will remember that these two men have a long history of beefing. It seems that McCain has been willing to adopt a Bush platform since becoming the frontrunner for the GOP, too.
