Several things which have long been anticipated finally happened Thursday:
--Barack Obama FINALLY got to throw one-time F.O.B. Robert Reich in Hillary Clinton's face with a new Wisconsin television ad which says: "On health care, even Bill Clinton's own Labor Secretary says Obama covers more people than Hillary."
--The Service Employees International Union FINALLY made a national endorsement, voting on a Thursday conference call to endorse Barack Obama.
--Lincoln Chafee, a former liberal Republican senator from Rhode Island, FINALLY got to announce his support for a Democrat. (In 2004, he didn't vote for George W. Bush but he didn't vote for John Kerry either; instead, he wrote in the name of former President George H.W. Bush).
--Hillary Clinton FINALLY let loose her inner-John Edwards, saying "words are cheap" while suggesting that Obama's high-falutin' oratory doesn't "put food on the table."
--Mitt Romney FINALLY got on the McCain train, giving the Arizona senator a chance to show off some of the worst endorsement body language of the cycle.
--New Mexico's Democratic Party FINALLY got done counting provisional ballots, giving Clinton a win in the state's party-run primary and allowing her to pick up one additional delegate. ABC News' overall delegate count now stands at: Obama 1,293; Clinton 1,226. (Before Thursday, all but one of New Mexico's 26 delegates had already been allocated by ABC between Clinton and Obama).
Looking ahead to Friday, ABC's George Stephanopoulos sits down with John McCain in Wisconsin for an on-the-road interview, which airs Sunday on "This Week."
As for Barack Obama, he spends Friday campaigning in Wisconsin, a state which votes Tuesday.
For their part, the Clintons focus Friday on the March 4th states of Ohio (where Hillary Clinton will be campaigning) and Texas (where Bill Clinton will do his glad-handing).
"Most people are saying it looks like McCain is the inevitable nominee, but I'm not most people." --Mike Huckabee on CNN On the campaign trail. . .
