Clinton Spin Machine Trying To Deflect Attention From Falling Poll Numbers

Spin is a strange thing. Just a few days ago, everyone was saying Clinton must win in Texas to remain viable. Now the Clinton camp is spinning Obama’s lead in the polls with the same line. They now say Obama must win in Texas to remain viable.

The truth is whichever candidate has the most pledged delegates will be the real winner. No matter how you spin it, that is what really matters. Clinton’s folks are trying to raise the bar for Obama just as they are trying to lower the expectations for Clinton in the Texas and Ohio primaries. Her lead has evaporated in Texas and is dwindling in Ohio, so the spin machine is in full swing.

Meanwhile the Obama campaign continues to make slow steady progress chipping away Clinton’s lead and rallying more super delegates.
