Political bits

How long has it been since I've seen a rousing Obama stemwinder? Those giant rallies are really Obama's campaign strength and now he finds himself debating policy (Clinton's ground) and fighting a soundbyte and TV ad campaign.

Maybe that's the difference in the small state/big state results?

(ChuckTodd) "for all the talk of bias against Clinton's campaign in the media, does anyone believe any other candidate could have lost 11-straight contests, be this far behind in delegates, and be simply two victories away from being back in the game?"

The WaPo has a frontpage story on how Clinton's core female supporters feel she's been mistreated. (Because we expect them to be neutral analysts?)

(Bloomberg) Charlie Crist offers to pay for a Florida rerun. (The Republicans desperately want to keep this primary going.)

(CNN) Limbaugh tells his listeners to vote for Clinton to keep the Dems in chaos.

(Politico) Roger Simon looks at the "Clinton as victim" mantra. (Are they trying to revive what worked in New Hampshire?)

There's going to be nasty, nasty weather across all of southern Ohio.

RealClearPolitics polling average
has Clinton retaking the Texas lead although it contains the dubious PPP and the poorly conducted Insider Advantage. (The Insider Advantage people called me and seemed to give me several opportunities to change my mind once I said Obama.)
