The Road Ahead

Hillary Clinton faces likely losses in Wyoming on Saturday and Mississippi next week. The former is a function of her team’s utter inability or unwillingness to devote time and money to winning small caucus states. Would it kill them to do some direct mail? Or maybe send the candidate to these places? Apparently it would. (Query whether now wouldn’t be a good time for Clinton to demonstrate her management skills and show a determination to “be herself” by dumping Mark Penn, who seems to delight in telling the media he is not responsible for much of anything.)

Beyond that looms the large prize of Pennsylvania, where Hillary currently leads and also enjoys the support of Governor Ed Rendell. That will be where she makes her final push to shove Barack Obama off his pedestal and demonstrate that only she can win the big races. Between now and then expect her to set out to prove he cannot take a punch–by, of course, throwing a lot of punches at him.
