West Virginia may not cut it for Clinton

Hillary Clinton is expected to win, but she was still on the campaign trail this weekend looking for votes.

Clinton needs more than West Virginia can give. When voters go to the polls Tuesday, they're expected to hand Clinton an easy win. It's not a victory that will reshape the race, though it should keep her in a fighting mood a little while longer.

Clinton claimed, "It's not over until the lady in the pants suit says it is."

It's superdelegates that will decide when it's really over.

At the beginning of the year, Clinton led among these party leaders by more than 100. But that lead is no more. After a weekend of defections and declarations, it's now Barack Obama that holds the upper hand.

Following the flurry of endorsements, the Obama campaign predicted the superdelegates would continue to break their way.

David Axelrod, Chief Strategist for the Obama Campaign, said, "I think there's an eagerness on the part of the party leadership and activists across the country to get on with the general election campaign. Senator McCain has been out there campaigning as the nominee for some time."

Many in the party would prefer Clinton make this as painless as possible. If she insists on continuing, they would like her to start drawing distinctions with John McCain instead of jabbing at Obama.

Howard Wolfson, Slinton Seinor Advisor, stated, "Look, if Barack Obama wants Hillary Clinton out of this race, beat her. Beat her in West Virginia. Beat her in Puerto Rico. Beat her in Kentucky."
