Posted on Tuesday, February 26th, 2008 at 8:46 pm.

There is a rare holiday, which I like to call Second Christmas.

To most it is a secret; it is celebrated all over Canada and Scandinavia, many celebrate in Germany and north Eastern Europe, but only about 0.002% of the U.S. population knows of it.

For those of you who don’t know, Republican John McCain has basically clinched the Republican nod and should be able to seal it on March 4th passing their threshold number (he’s uncatchable at this point, so it doesn’t really matter).

Now, as a political junkie, I’ve been following the nomination very closely, watched almost every Democrat and Republican debate, and I read the blogs and watch news on it every day with my other news gathering.
