The pundits said Senator Clinton needed to win Pennsylvania be about 10 points. And she did. She also gained a few delegates and reduced Obama’s lead in the popular vote as she won the last big state left in play.
So where does Hillary go from here? Well, there’s Indiana (where she’s three points ahead) and there’s North Carolina (where he’s 16 points ahead). So what are the pundits saying now? That she must win Indiana, it’s do or die or get out.
Then she must convince the super-delegates to stay neutral until after the last primary in the first week of June. She must also convince them that Obama can’t close the deal. Other than his own state of Illinois Obama has not won a big industrial state. Then she must convince them that she has a better chance of defeating McCain in the general election. If she can win Indiana and some of the other nine states left and if she can persuade the super delegates to hold their fire, she could conceivably win the nomination. But at what cost to the party? Where would Obama’s supporters go?
Do you think Hillary can still win?
If she loses Indiana should she drop out?
Does Hillary or Obama have the better chance of beating McCain?
