6. Cali, my guess is she'll cede Texas if necessary & focus resources to fight in Ohio
Edited on Fri Feb-22-08 09:32 AM by cryingshame
so even if she DOES lose one of those two states and ultimately does have to drop out, she can still point to a win and go out on a high note.

This is if her internals show Texas as getting too far away from her.
