Major progress on the political front Tuesday night: Romney locked up another 83 delegates, putting his total at 646 of the 1,144 needed for the Republican nomination, meaning he is virtually free to ignore his GOP opponents and go after Obama full-time. The president, meanwhile, officially captured the Democratic nomination by clinching D.C. and Maryland.

Consider this the first day of the general election.
