As Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) regained some of the momentum she had lost to Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) in the protracted fight for the Democratic presidential nomination Tuesday night, Stanford supporters from both camps offered positive outlooks on the evening’s results and were optimistic about what the future holds.
Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain clinched his party’s nomination with sweeping victories in all four states that voted last night — Ohio, Rhode Island, Texas and Vermont — prompting his main challenger, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, to concede the GOP nomination. But the Democratic picture is far murkier after last night’s results.---

Sen. John McCain got the support of Texas pastor John Hagee, an evangelical Christian who has made support for the state of Israel a centerpiece of his ministry.Hagee endorsed McCain ,saying he did so because McCain is a pro-life, pro-Israel politician who has pledged to secure the country's borders
There's a rabidly Zionist bunch of Christians in the U.S. which is also adamantly opposed to Iran getting the bomb, in case it might attack Israel. John Hagee is very liberal with his ministry’s money when it comes to Israel. A Religious News Service report stated that Hagee raised over $1 million to help Soviet Jews resettle in Israel. He believes that Jews already have a covenant with God and a relationship to God and do not need to come to the cross. This certainly is a shocking statement in the light of Jesus’ words that “no man comes to the Father but through me” (John 14:6).
