The Clintons are acting desperate. Her inevitability has vanished in the wake of Bill Clinton's vitriolic racist pandering, Chelsea's trotting out her Oxford Globalist pedigree which serves to remind people of just how Elitist this "for the working man" this Establishment family really is. That noted, the road through Texas-Ohio-Pennsylvania is no walk in the park for the Clintons. Momentum aside, Texas is arranged in such a way that districts are designed favoring Blacks and there are caucuses in Texas which so far have favored Obama. Ohio may be ready for some change, they have lost more jobs to Globalism than any other state and now lead the Nation in foreclosures. Pennsylvania may divide into east and west. Urban east going for Obama and working class and rural west perhaps going to Clinton. Though the rural vote is no given for Clinton as Nevada proved earlier.
Clinton's problem is she needs to win all three. Being tied or close is just not good enough anymore to regain any meaningful momentum. Clinton's campaign has been fraught with missteps and miscalculations. Her biggest misstep is ironically bringing Bill out from behind the scenes. That has back fired. Her finances are in trouble and she's just flailing away out there and having to spend her own money in the campaign.. She's gone negative in Wisconsin. Her executive judgment has been called into question. Running a campaign is an executive's resume. Barack Obama is clearly running the better campaign, he has the strategy, organization, money, the crowds and is being rewarded by pulling ahead in the votes and delegates. It's not over, no, but the nomination is looking more and more like it's Obama's to lose.
McCain says he's ready for either one. If the Democrats can't come out of the convention unified and with a message that resonates across the board in American hearts, McCain will just wrap himself up in the flag and walk to Pennsylvania Avenue, Washington D.C. where his new big white home will be waiting for him. That is a tried and true path. The second biggest mistake the Democrats can make would be underestimating John McCain or the Republican political machine.
