Tomorrow the streetfight: Obama v. HRC, Texas, and Back to Ohio.
AP: Texas and Ohio battleground. Two big states with rich and colorful political histories; anything could happen. Yes, this affects you--and all your clients. Right now: Obama has 1,385 delegates, HRC has 1,276. Total of 2,025 needed to win. John McCain looks like the GOP winner.

Not that I am always correct, but to the degree that I feel what is happening in Texas, Hillary will carry Texas, Ohio and Rhode Island. Barack will carry Vermont. The Democratic Party has a problem in the way its systems disenfranchise voters through caucuses and proportional representation based upon past trends, that will still have to be worked out, but it will be a problem for Barack in that, with the exception of Illinois, he will have failed to win one large state.

Chuck--We read your blog, and think you've been right and are right about a lot of things. And it's great you think that American politics is critical to follow. Best, Holden
