    This is unadulterated good news. I heard Major Garrett on Fox say that the polls in Indiana looked like those in Pennsylvania before the Primary and he predicted 7-9 for Clinton. He may have a point although Zogby doesn't agree-yet. However, he then went on to say that if Obama ran up a similar win in NC that would be 'disappointing'. If Obama does as well as she did in Pennsylvania then he's got to trumpet it as much as she managed to. NC does not have nearly as many white liberal voters as Virginia, nor as many black voters as in SC. So a 20 point blow out was never likely although many of us hoped for it.

    I'll take a 9 point win in NC any time. It would be 1 point better than in that leaked spreadsheet by the way although the forecast in Indiana was for a win, unfortunately. But hey how can anyone forecast Primary results with total accuracy two months in advance.
