I can’t put my finger on it, but I’m getting this vague sense of slight Barack Obama slippage. Something along the lines of what happened in New Hampshire. Women rallying ’round, yahoos buying into the red-phone bullshit, the hate, the beginnings of the ’08 swift-boating. I’m not saying Hillary Clinton will take Texas (Obama will almost certainly finish with more Texas delegates, no matter how the vote tips) but Hillary’s possible winning margin in Ohio — 5% or 6%? — is starting to scare me. And if she stays in and it goes to Pennsylvana the old James Carville definition of that state — “Philadelphia in the east, Pittsburgh in the west and Alabama in between” — is also unnverving.
