FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:
"Suddenly, against all odds, the once-mighty Clinton campaign is beginning to feel like the last days of Pompeii."
That's the lead sentence in a terrific piece by Thomas DeFrank in today's New York Daily News.
Although he insists it's too early to write off the Clintons, DeFrank writes about "a growing sense of doom and dread" surrounding Hillary's campaign, adding that their insistence that things will turn around in Ohio and Texas sounds eerily like Rudy Giuliani's disastrous wait-until Florida turnaround strategy.
The New York Times also reports today how Clinton has been boxed into a must-win position in those two March 4th races. However, even though the candidate herself is reassuring anxious donors and superdelegates that the nomination isn't slipping away from her, some aren't convinced.
Several Clinton superdelegates say they're wavering because of Barack Obama's momentum after his weekend victories. Some say they might end up "going with the flow" and supporting whichever candidate appears to show the most strength.
Here's the thing: Obama's momentum doesn't show any signs of slowing down. On the contrary, polls suggest he has a commanding lead in today's Potomac Primaries in Maryland, Virginia and D.C. Polls also show him gaining strength in both Wisconsin and Hawaii, states that vote next Tuesday.
The Clinton camp says, "There is no evidence that voters are voting based on momentum – in fact the evidence is to the contrary." They point out that Obama's victory in Iowa didn't translate to a win for him in New Hampshire.
Here’s my question to you: If Barack Obama sweeps the rest of February’s contests, where does that leave Hillary Clinton?
