McCain is riding high right about now with leads in all the states that matter. Mitt-mentum is gone (but he's still going for the Jewish vote based on the pin pictured at right) and McCain-mentum is ratcheting up daily.

Yesterday, McCain went into the territory that should still be Rudy's and walked away with $1-million in donations for his coffers while Giuliani is trying to hold on in the state that--like most New Yorkers--has become his second home.
