    From Iowa to New Hampshire she had only 4 days.  I think she'll draw a battle line here despite whatever grumblings are coming from her campaign and/or the mainstream media.

      Rally in Racine, Milwaukee Madison, Green Bay, La Crosse, Eau Claire...it could be brutal, but then again , inspirng...+ hit local media markets at each stop and reach most of the state.  WI loves politics and she could make some headway...I don't know her plans, but as some people here have said, a win here would really bring her some Big Mo.  Again, this will be very interesting race in WI, will tell a lot about where race is heading.

      What the hell's going on out here--Vince Lombardi -6.75/-5.85

      Hillary is not stupid. She has laid the groundwork for this brilliantly: The press already bought her story of "no wins till March" and that's what's now the expected future.

      Did anyone even look whether Obama is leading in WI? Not in any public poll...

      If we wake up in 9 days and the papers are full of "Shocking win for Hillary" and "Hillary back on her game" that will be giant coup for the Clinton campaign. And that publicity will cost them nothing.

      •  Expectations game (5+ / 0-)

        The expectations game becomes less and less important as this goes on.  At a certain point she has to win delegates.  Even if she does win Wisconsin, it will likely be by a narrow margin, e.g. like the 2% margin in New Hampshire.

        That's not to say that the day after headlines won't give her a boost.  They will.  But not like NH did.  And bounces generally dissipate with time, and there is a long 2 weeks in btwn Wisconsin and OH & TX.

      •  Does any other country ... (0+ / 0-)

        Does any other country in the world spend so much time waste so many media cycles worrying about the "expectations game"?

        I doubt it. When you think about it, it's flat out absurd.
