What McCain's Campaign Means By "Mathematically Impossible"

Says McCain campaign manager Rick Davis:

"The results from tonight’s primary elections in Virginia, Maryland and Washington, D.C., make it mathematically impossible for Governor Huckabee to secure the Republican nomination for president.

"He now needs 950 delegates to secure the required 1,191.

"But in the remaining contests there are only 774 delegates available.

"He would need to win 123 percent of remaining delegates."



That does indeed sound mathematically impossible.

But wait -- didn't Huckabee "major in miracles"?

Perhaps he could transubstantiate Chip Saltsman's chewin' tobacco into 176 delegates?
