    He only raised $40M in March.

      That explains why he's able to set up 30 field offices in Pennsylvania and produce 3 new TV ads (spots that haven't aired in other markets) including a full 60-second ad and outspend Clinton 5-1 there.

      He entered March with $33m in resources after debts were backed out. Clinton entered the month at $3m. He's raised $40m in March. Her campaign estimates that she's made $20-25m.

        It certainly doesn't look good when the following is reported:

        The Clinton campaign has said it would not release its March figures until it is required required to file a report with the Federal Election Commission on April 20, just two days before the critical Pennsylvania primary on April 22.
        If the amount of money is no big deal, like Hillary's campaign spokesman implies, then why not report it now instead of April 20th? We all know the answer to that rhetorical question.

          She has a 9 point lead in PN.

          She has a 9 point lead in IN.

            Oh, we haven't even reached the apex of shrill yet.
            From this day forward, I no longer shall tinker with the machinery of death.

            For more than 20 years I have endeavored-indeed, I have struggled-along with a majority of this Court, to develop procedural & substantive rules that would lend more than the mere appearance of fairness to the death penalty endeavor.


            I feel morally and intellectually obligated simply to concede that the death penalty experiment has failed.

            The path the Court has chosen lessens us all. I dissent.

              I dunno. The reports of Hillary screaming at Governor Richardson "He cannot win, Bill!" are pretty close to the mountaintop.

                Now that McCain has it locked up, I wonder how many Republicans are voting for Hilary to throw a wrench in the Democrats system.

                    There was an article in the PD (AP article?) a few weeks back saying something along the lines of ~9% of Hillary's Texas votes where 'shenanigan' republicans and a good number in Ohio. Don't have the link now though

                      It's not over until its over. They don't quit playing basketball games when the other team has a 8 point lead with two minutes left.

                      She does need to win by more then that in PA and IN.

                      Her Bosnia lie hurt her more than Wright hurt Obama and hit just when she was building some momentum and now more SDs are coming for her.

                      If she doesn't win PA by at 15...then its probably over but if we have learned anything in this election its that polling is often inaccurate.

                      That said, what money she does have she will save until the last couple weeks before PA and then we should look at the polls because at the moment he is far outspending her there.

                        Rush Limbaugh did his best---but it was not good enough to stop obama from winning Texas.

                        Unless you buy Hillary's and Penn's garbage that number of delegates won is not all that important.

                          The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows Barack Obama holding an eight-point lead ever in the race for the Democratic Presidential Nomination. Obama now attracts 50% of the vote while Clinton earns 42%.
                          This is Obama’s second straight day with a sizable lead and support reaching 50% (see recent daily results). However, it will take several more days to determine whether this signals a shift in the race or is merely statistical noise.

                          Rasmussen Markets data now give Obama a 84.8 % chance to win the Democratic nomination. Obama has opened a twenty-three percentage point lead in North Carolina. In Pennsylvania, Clinton has the lead but Obama is gaining ground.

                          McCain is viewed favorably by 55% and unfavorably by 42%. Obama’s reviews are 52% favorable and 46% unfavorable. For Clinton, those numbers are 47% favorable, 51% unfavorable (see recent daily results).

                          Once hillary is out of the way--I expect McCain's favorable-unfovorable ratings will drop.
