This is laughable. Just two weeks ago the Clinton campaign was waving off a string of embarrassing primary and caucus losses and looking ahead to Texas and Ohio, supposedly their "firewall" where they'd rebound with "decisive" victories. At the time, Sen. Clinton enjoyed leads of 20 points or more in both states. Now Obama has caught fire, and suddenly is within striking distance of winning one or both. More importantly, Clinton will probably not make up any significant ground in the delegate totals coming out of the March 4 contests, and could even lose ground in Texas. And we're supposed to believe that anything less than blowout wins for Obama count as losses for him? Give me a break. Ohio and Texas were, by her own campaign's admission, Hillary Clinton's last best shot. Even Bill said she needed to win both states decisively. If she fails to deliver the knockout she promised, it's over.

she is so over.... and bitter!!! sore loser, she ought to be ashamed of herself!

unity and change. that what the man's promising. imo, he's the most divisive candidate out there. if you look at this from a policy point of view, do you really believe republicans, even moderate ones are gonna come around to the pro-choice, pro-same sex union, anti-war stance? i'm a very liberal democrat who laughs at the idea of red states and blue states turning magically into something purple. unity SOUNDS great. it ain't gonna happen. and the way obamatons are treating the hillary supporters, you get your bottom dollar that a significant majority of hillary voters will drift to mccain. you know why? if you look at his policies, he's not a bad guy. he's been a POW for 5 years. he's got experience, which regardless of what people say, matters. would you hire a babysitter for your precious children with no references, a history of drug abuse, and no experience in child development? if you would, then don't blame your husband who was weary of the babysitter in the first place, when the kid burns his hands on the stove. and change? both hillary and obama are promising the same exact things. most of these issues and ideas obama stole from clinton platform. HILLARY is the BEST candidate for the job. she's worked hard her entire life, she's faced significant challenges, was at ground zero comforting families, firefighters and cops after 9/11. she's an intelligent person with massive foreign policy experience. she won't be spending the first two years of her presidency meeting world leaders;she already knows them. she can defeat mccain. she is battletested. you don't think the republicans are saving up all the dirt they've uncovered on obama for the general election? they've got a lot to work with already: tony rezko, his ties to iraqi government officials, his flip-flopping views on NAFTA, and the list continues to grow. VOTE HILLARY FOR PRESIDENT 2008

lame

It's a little late for a covert internet campaign there sooj, and you didn't really stick to the subject.

Hillary is at best a liar and at worst an unstable, power hungry, selfish, fear mongering crazy woman.

And a liar!

That is why she is losing, not because of a lousy campaign, in addition to a lousy campaign.

Apparently Hillary, with a lot more experience as the wife of Bill and running for herself, has not been running a better campaign than the newcomer, Barack Obama. Claiming experience doesn't mean the candidate's more qualified.

I mean come on, it's a campaign. If you can find the money and figure out a good way to spend it in order to win, that's what you should do. Blaming the other side for winning is the strangest tactic I've ever seen. Michael Jordan never said, "I could win if only they stopped shooting so much and playing defense." Laughable is right.

Alphonse

"RE: Obama Must-Wins" is funny. I guess Hillary does not understand she has to win.

Ignatz

Part of Hillary's appeal was that she was seen as the one who would be most likely to win in November - the one who "could take" the Republican attacks, whereas many (including me) didn't know about Obama's ability to handle those attacks.

But the fact is that Hillary was campaigning fine when she HAD no challenges, and has reacted HORRIBLY as soon as there WAS a real challenge. Obama is the one who has handled campaign challenges well.

I have changed my mind. I do NOT want her to be the nominee. What if she conducts a campaign this ineptly when running in a general election? Is there any reason to believe that she won't?

Nancy Green

i saw michelle obama speak in rhode island. she said, 'they keep raising the bar.'

jmn

They will get out when her high priced consultants have decided they have enough of her supporter's money.

John Aravosis

Yes, it sucks to lose, but once you've lost it's better to get out than take us all down with you. This race is getting far too bitter. I see it in our own readers - it went from friendly competition to a death match about 4 weeks ago. If Obama doesn't get 75% of delegates in Texas on Tuesday, he needs to accept that he lost, and quit the race.

Vanessa

This is really very sad. Initially I thought Hillary would make a great president but as this campaign progresses I like very little of what I see in her actions and reactions.

Log Cabinette

I would have given Hillary a look. She appears strong enough on foreign policy, but she has shown a crazy streak in this campaign. I wouldn't be too happy with Obama handling foreign policy and I am still voting McCain but I would prefer Obama to Hillary now.
I would like to ask Hillary, what if Obama picks up every state except Rhode Island? According to your (il)logic that is still a disaster for him!

little red fox

i agree with you, log cabinette. as this election closes in on her and she and her campaign staff have to face the inevitable, her personality is lapsing into some kind of schizophrenia and feels unstable. and, needless to say, not very presidential. and obama is able to maintain a calm demeanor and absorb all of it. that weird memo, the threats of lawsuits, the florida/michigan thing all feels like sour grapes. i was a fan of obama from the beginning and have felt very little cause to change my mind. and can someone explain to me how she is so much more experienced than him? because her husband was president?? my husband is in sales so does that qualify me to do the same since i've been to some business dinners??
