10 things to watch on Super Tuesday 2008
Advertisements [?]
1. California uber alles. A loss -- even by a single vote -- could be a devastating, perhaps irrecoverable setback for Hillary Clinton. The state is her second (or third? or fourth?) home. She was expected to dominate here and was comfortably ahead with double-digit leads prior to the South Carolina debacle. She has locked up most of the state's leading politicians -- white, black and Hispanic -- and enjoys a 15-year relationship with the Hollywood power establishment. She's an icon in a garden of celebrity. She is even believed to have an edge among the 40 percent of Californians who already have cast ballots through the state's early-voting system because most are women, according to pollsters. A narrow win for her is defensible -- especially since California's apportionment system gives the victor a disproportionate share of delegates. But an Obama victory could give him monster momentum and demolish her claims to viability in a general election. And forget about her trying to raise serious money in La-La Land.
