10. That's a good point, but ...
... suppose she takes all three of the states (TX, OH, RI) that day? She is ahead in all three states, though Obama is closing the gap. But his victory is not assured, in spite of the assertions of Obama supporters and the press (but I repeat myself).

Even wins by small margins, three of them, would certainly add momentum to her campaign. And a lot of people seem to forget that while it is highly unlikely that Clinton will achieve 2025 delegates by the convention, Obama is in a similar position. Getting to 2025 will not be as difficult for him, but he is still not likely to reach it.

Hillary is actually doing pretty well, considering that she is not just running against an individual, but a social movement, excitement, emotionally involving group activity, Change, Hope, and The Future. It is a good campaign strategy by Obama, but the fact that she's able to keep her polling numbers as high as they are speaks well to her base of support.

She shouldn't be counted out yet. In two weeks, that might change -- but it might also change for the better. The contest isn't quite over. Calling for her acquiescence now is still a little premature.
