Even longtime Clinton ally James Carville is acknowledging that Hillary is in trouble, saying that if she loses the March 4 primary in either Texas or Ohio, her campaign is doomed.
Speaking at the International Builders Show in Florida on Wednesday, Carville — a top adviser to Bill Clinton in the 1990s — declared:
“She’s behind. Make no mistake. If she loses either Texas or Ohio, this thing is done.”

But Obama leads in the polls in Wisconsin, which holds its primary on Feb. 19. And while recent polls in Ohio and Texas show Clinton ahead, her support among Hispanic-Americans — considered crucial in Texas — has been waning, and political analyst Dick Morris has predicted that Hillary will lose in Ohio, as well as in Pennsylvania and North Carolina.
With her back against the wall, Clinton on Wednesday unleashed a strident attack ad against Obama, saying: “I am in the solutions business. My opponent is in the promises business. I think we need answers, not question.”
Carville is undoubtedly correct, she must win big in those states, if she wants to have a credible claim to the nomination.

I don't know about Dick Morris and his predictions. I'd like to think he was right, but Clinton leads in Ohio and Pa, though a recent poll shows Obama 10% up in NC.

There is plenty of states left with big A.A population namely: Mississipi, North Carolina, Indiana.....the list goes on. She has to win those by big margins; not an easy task.

Last I checked, here in the Hoosier state, Hillary is favored, especially since Evan Byah is her superdelegate and will probably be her runningmate.

Hahahah......demographically, there is no difference between Indiana and SC. Count Indiana out for Hillary. Can't put much into Hillary favorism over there. LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED IN MAINE.
