Wrong on Hillary's wins

Last week I thought Obama would win 7 out of the 9 February primaries & caucuses that were still to come. I was wrong. He's going to win them all. I hadn't read closely enough to realize that Maine & Nenbraska were holding caucuses rather than primaries. The caucus format favors Obama because they're slanted toward the party activists and zealots.

So, Obama will win 9 straight contests after the Super Tuesday draw. The media has begun to provide those "back-to-the-wall" stories about the Clinton campaign. The New York Times says the March 4 primaries in Texas & Ohio are "must wins" for Clinton or she's done. The Democratic Party will not tolerate any attempt to drag this on once it becomes clear that Obama is probably going to win.
