    Texas is still a long shot even if you put everything in his favor.

      I think "long shot" is pessimistic when you're looking at a state in which 50% of the population is in subgroups that vote overwhelmingly Democratic (37.6 Hispanic, 11.8% Black).  I think a better term for the state is "challenging", because you have all these voters that would likely support you but haven't traditionally voted.  

      However, If anyone can get Texas Blacks and Latinos out to vote it would be Obama.  It's just a matter of if that's a cost effective strategy to pursue.
