Marie Wilson, the author of Closing the Leadership
Gap: Add Women, Change Everything,
speaks to Riz
A clear picture of the Democrat and Republican nominees for US president was expected to emerge from 'Super Tuesday'. But the pundits who predicted that just a few weeks ago got it wrong.

'Super Tuesday' has come and gone, leaving more uncertainty about who might win this political race. Either way, it promises to be a massive fight to the finish.

Twenty-four states went to the polls for primaries and caucuses across the United States on Tuesday, scoring major victories for Republican candidate John McCain - although the other two Republican hopefuls - Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee - remain in the running for now.

On the Democratic side, it was a result more in Senator Hillary Clinton's favour - but her opponent, Senator Barack Obama, is still standing very close behind, with both camps gearing up for long and bruising battles ahead.
