Cheeseheads for Obama

It's another blow-out for Obama. He apparently cut deeply into Clinton's constituencies in a state that could have proved suitable terrain for her. No results from Hawaii yet, but it's probably good for Obama. Although some party leaders in the state support Hillary, it's Obama's home state and Obama has consistently done well in caucuses.
This is very good for the Obama campaign. Before, expectations were such that if Hillary won a single state in the recent line-up, it would be treated as a big loss for Obama. Now that Obama has made it through without tripping a single time, he is in a much better position once the fight comes to Texas and Ohio. Maybe those voters will buck the trend, but HRC is looking increasingly a long shot.
