Credit where it's due

I don't really know how they did it, but the Clinton campaign seems to have (at least temporarily) killed the conventional wisdom coming out of Wisconsin that she had to win both Texas and Ohio by a wide delegate margin in order to continue.

Now, the press and pundits seem to be accepting the argument that winning only Ohio, and only by a little, is enough for her.

We'll have to see if that expectations game holds up in the face of election results, but give a little credit where it's due.

However they pulled this off, that's pretty good politics.
