Obama Now Officially Front-Runner

So says Time Magazine's (and friend to this blog) Jay Newton-Small:

For anyone who thinks this race might be a tie, and yes, David Axelrod, that includes you, there’s a lot of evidence today that Obama is now the frontrunner. He leads in number of states won, he leads by his own campaign’s tally in pledged delegates, he is so far ahead in the money race that his opponent is borrowing money and he clearly has the momentum coming out of Super Tuesday. How is he NOT the frontrunner??

The Expectations Game just became a little tougher for Obama.
