Irrational exuberance about Obama's win
This in part makes this somewhat silly. Obama won a historic victory, but he also had fewer serious competitors, more time to campaign, and a base of voters clearly united behind him. McCain and Huckabee had fewer days to campaign, an additional serious competitor and a base clearly uncertain about where to go.
It's a long time until November.
UPDATE: In 1988, Jesse Jackson won more than half the Democratic vote in caucus.
