If only we can have several more Texas "wins" for Hillary, Obama will reach 2025.

7. I am thinking that the vast amount of time...
...between Mississippi and Penn, will give him an advantage in Penn.

The candidates will have six weeks to campaign like hell, and Obama
has an amazing ground game and the more people see and hear him, the more
they gravitate toward him.

I saw this happen in Iowa. Hillary started out in Iowa with advantages--her
name recognition and months of being called "the frontrunner." Slowly, as
the campaign progressed, people liked what they saw and heard from Obama.

Hillary has the lead in Penn right now. However, all of those weeks are time
that Obama can chip away at that lead and win voters over to his side.

Obama needs to re-tool his campaign, and come out swinging for Penn as if
this race was just beginning and he's the underdog who is behind by 30 points.

I'm very hopeful that Obama can pull of Penn, but he's got to seriously
work on his communication skills and he's got to go bold. He should avoid
personal attacks, but he's got to be aggressive and bold. He also has to
do a better and more creative job of showcasing his ideas and his experience.

I read a great deal about Obama before the caucuses and I studied his "Blueprint
For America." I'm astounded at his experience and his selling points that are
virtually unknown. He needs to shine the spotlight on himself a bit, and also
bring back the Kennedys, John Kerry, other Dems who have endorsed him and engage
in some real guerrilla marketing of himself.

8. I agree completely. He also needs to eat up some 24 hr news cycles with HIS message and HIS
surrogates. He needs to make it clear he WON Texas.. how does the media get away with not reporting this? He also needs to retool his stump speech, add some new material, do more town halls and small meetings where people can really talk to him. More press availability, more TV shows, etc.

4. Is it still possible for him to reach 2025?
I keep reading here that it's not.

9. As is with Hillary, not without the Supers. Not unless she drops out.

11. Technically, yes.
Obama needs about 70% of the remaining pledged delegates, so mathematically there are enough delegates left. The problem is that he'd only get there if Hillary basically drops out because she will continue to get some base of support (35%) in all of the remaining states as long as she's in and will get too many delegates for Obama to pull it off by himself.

5. This is the Obama strategy
Blowout Clinton in the small red states that she ignores and then hold her to narrow victories in the big blue states.

12. Not a bad strategy, given that he'll win the blue states in Nov anyway.
And it plants the seed to flip the states - or at least force McLame to waist money campaigning there this fall :)

6. There is an at-large (not super) delegate also based on overall
winner in WY. So that's +3 at least.
