Am I disappointed about yesterday's primary results? Of course. I had hoped that the margin would be closer to six points. Ten points gave Hillary just enough room to crow and plot her next move. Will she ultimately prevail? Likely that will only happen should the Super Delegates decide to give her the nod. She made up some ground last night in delegates and votes, but at the end of the day Obama still leads in both categories by a sizable enough margin that Hillary will have to win out by significant margins. 55-45 isn't going to do it. Her only hope is that Obama implodes, and as nasty as the campaign has been he's not done that. He's had to use his financial resources to overcome her attacks and her built in advantages -- like the Pennsylvania political machine run by Governor Ed Rendell. Don't think that his efforts didn't match Obama's money -- it did and more.
In two weeks -- an electoral eternity -- we will watch as Indiana and North Carolina have their say. North Carolina seems to be fertile ground for an Obama win, and he has a significant lead there. The real "battleground" will be Indiana. Indiana is very similar to Pennsylvania and Ohio, and yet there are other factors at play. Although Evan Baye is backing Hillary, he's not Ed Rendell. In addition, Northwest Indiana is near Illinois, and that should be of help.
So, onward and upward!
