She should give up with dignity.. If she has any left! I think she should be more worried at this point about her senate re-election... !

Clinton replacing her campaign manager is like rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic.

Hillary may have miscalculated. She may have thought she would knock out Obama on super Tuesday. That didn't happen. Now she is scrambling to win in the remaining states. Unfortunately for her, McCain has emerged as the likely GOP nominee, and the Democrats in the states that still have to hold primaries (eg Texas, Ohio, Pennsylvania, etc) will now be forced to decide on who would be the strongest Democratic candidate against McCain. That candidate should be someone who can win swing states and red states. That appears to be Barack Obama. Clinton Democrats in Texas, Ohio, and Pennsylvania will now have to face the reality that Barack matches up better with McCain. This will result in Barack winning in the Texas, Ohio, and Pennsylvania primaries, as pragmatic considerations will force Hillary supporters to abandon her in favor of the stronger general election candidate.

It is a little early to write her off. We still have several more states left to go.

Not only that but some Republicans are now crossing over and taking Democratic ballots and many of them are voting for Obama as well.

The Vegas odds makers have Clinton at a slight advantage over Obama to take the nomination. They have the Dems at a substantial advantage over the Repubs to take the White House. I'm going with the LV odds makers. Obama is headed for the maw of the Clinton election machine, I don't see Obama surviving the all out assault of the Clinton Political Empire.
