Airlines are still using widebodies domestically. Most Hawaiian service is done by widebodies, and on the mainland there are still a ton of 767 flights. There are also things like UA 777 ORD-DEN, 744 ORD-SFO, AA 777 ORD-DFW, AA MD-11 DFW-MIA, and probably others.

Every airline that has widebody aircraft operates those widebodies on domestic routes with the exception of USAirways!! (AA, DL, NW, UA, CO, TW).
In addition, UA not only deploys 777/747/767/DC-10's on hub to hub flights...they deploy an EXTREMELY large amount of those planes to some of the smaller-served UA destinations such as SEA, MIA, BWI, etc. The same goes for AA, NW, and DL.

American still has one DC-10 domestic flight, from EWR to LAX. Other that that they have a 777 flight from DFW to ORD which I flew on two months ago, a flight from DFW to MIA on the MD-11 like you said, a bunch of 767's flying domestically and the A300 on flights between JFK to MIA. Now all transcon flights from JFK to LAX and SFO are 767's. They also fly 767's from SFO to DFW, ORD to SFO and ORD to LAX.
So you see, right now American has domestic flights on all five widebody types that it has in its fleet inventory.

Indeed you are correct except that Delta do indeed fly wide-bodied aircraft internally; they fly the 777-200 on routes from Atlanta to Orlando (mainly for crew training purposes) when not flying to London. They also fly hundreds of flights each day with their L-1011 TriStars and 767s domestically, and MD-11s fly regularly scheduled daily flights from Atlanta to Portland and back - and soon also Atlanta to New York JFK.
