The Comeback Kid

Ohio has tipped pretty favorably toward Hillary, while Texas is too close to call. Vermont and Rhode Island predictably went to Obama and Hillary, respectively. I don't think that the Clinton campaign can catch up to Obama, but perhaps the toughness of these races means Obama is not as strong a general-election candidate as I hoped earlier (though clearly better than Hillary).
The muddle that emerges probably won't put Hillary in the position that she can win, it will merely make Obama a weaker eventual nominee (making a 2012 Hillary run more likely? Perish the thought!) Probably the real winner tonight is John McCain. I'm biting my nails about the idea of a brokered convention, especially with Michigan and Florida in limbo. As much as a brokered convention makes reporters salivate, it would be a disaster for Democrats. Damn.
