Carville says Hillary's in trouble
Things aren't so good in Hillary-Land right now. Staff shakeups are one thing, but now actually being behind in the delegate count with only about three states standing between her and oblivion is worse. Carville points out the obvious:
Even longtime Clinton ally James Carville is acknowledging that Hillary is in trouble, saying that if she loses the March 4 primary in either Texas or Ohio, her campaign is doomed.
Speaking at the International Builders Show in Florida on Wednesday, Carville - a top adviser to Bill Clinton in the 1990s - declared:
"She's behind. Make no mistake. If she loses either Texas or Ohio, this thing is done."
In other words, her back's against the wall. And we all know how the Clintons act when that happens...
With her back against the wall, Clinton on Wednesday unleashed a strident attack ad against Obama, saying: "I am in the solutions business. My opponent is in the promises business. I think we need answers, not question."
The potential benefit to the Republicans here is that Hillary's pretty much going to be forced to open her opposition notebook on Obama and throw everything they've got at him. Which means even if he wins, he'll be worse off for the general, since it will have been fellow Democrats that brought those issues up to begin with.
