Because she's so far behind, Clinton needed 10%+.
Advertisements [?]
There's a reason she needed a large win, and it is that she needs to make up a lot of ground to take the nomination.

With this 6-8% win, she did not show that she can do that. She will not make up the difference at this rate or any rate that she has previously shown.

In the meantime, old man McCain sits back and watches the Dems increase each others negatives and waste money.

Yes, Clinton, the race is over, and it's time to face that.
