A Math Lesson for Gov. Huckabee

Mike Huckabee, who wants you to know he’s still in the race, has challenged John McCain to a debate.

Here's something for them to debate. Be it resolved that:

994 (McCain's current delegate count) + 88 (Ohio) + 140 (Texas) + 20 (Rhode Island) + 17 (Vermont) > 1,191 (the number of delegates necessary to win the nomination)  

Similarly:

239 (Huckabee’s current delegate count) + 88 (Ohio) + 140 (Texas) + 20 (Rhode Island) + 17 (Vermont) + 39 (Mississippi) + 9 (Virgin Islands) + 74 (Pennsylvania) + 57 (Indiana) + 69 (North Carolina) + 20 (Hawaii) + 45 (Kentucky) + 30 (Oregon) + 32 (Idaho) + 32 (New Mexico) + 27 (South Dakota) + 33 (Nebraska) < 1,191  

Miracles , indeed.
