A Few Signs Of Fallout

Being tied in North Carolina and falling further behind in Pennsylvania are two small, post-Wright indications that things are not going swimmingly for Barack Obama. The Clinton camp is crowing about improved polling, although does not want to link it to Wright. And a savvy Democrat (h/t Ben Smith) or two noticed that Obama really did not explain what he was doing hanging out with a preacher spouting racist, anti-American venom. If Clinton keeps her lead, wins Pennsylvania by a big margin and comes close in North Carolina she will be crowing that the bottom has fallen out of Obama’s campaign. Should she win North Carolina, the media will be saying the same thing.
