Just a quick diary to inform any Hillary supporters who still get onto this site (I know there are a few) that Hillary is leading in Ohio (2 brand new polls have her leading by 8 and 11 points), Texas (holding onto a slim lead according to most recent polls, AND Rhode Island - recent polls have her with a 10 to 15 point lead, depending on the poll.

I'm a bit pressed for time, so I'm not going to do a bunch of links - all recent polling can be found at or

The point is this - the media is trying to bury Hillary, but she is stubbornly clinging to a lead in these states, and it is fairly solid in both Ohio and Rhode Island.

If she wins in Texas, Ohio and Rhode Island on 3/4, even if Texas is close, and even if Obama does get more delegates in Texas because of their crazy rules - there is going to be one story told that night.  Obama cannot close the deal, and cannot win the key swing states like Ohio.  If she goes on to decisive victories in states like Pennsylvania (closed primary, Democrats only in that one!) and most of the other remaining states - she will be the nominee.  

I believe Obama has reached his high water mark and the race is about to turn.  Look for a strong and aggressive debate performance tomorrow night, and a great comeback, starting on March 4th.

In my opinion --

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
