Are We There Yet?

Do you get any blogging dispensation for Tax Day? No, I didn't think so.

We're finally within a week of the voting in the Pennsylvania primary. It's just been forever since we had any actual polling, and we're having less and less content to focus on. I'm sick of the whole thing, and we've still got almost seven months before the actual election. It's going to get more and more annoying, and I suspect that once we get it down to one Democrat and one Republican, it's going to get extremely slimy.

Even with what the pundits insist are body blows to his campaign (who could imagine that anyone in this country in this time during this economy could actually be bitter?), Obama seems to be holding his own. It's common wisdom that Hillary needs an impressive victory in Pennsylvania, but a couple of weeks back, Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell was telling Russert that in Pennsylvania, 4 percentage points can count as a big win. Way to lower expectations. If they're not careful, they're going to be doubling back on themselves. For Hillary to get a win of any sort, or even to not lose too badly, is a victory under the circumstances. Hillary needs to beat Obama decisively and make a dent in his delegate lead. We're getting near the end. Staying alive is not a successful strategy.
