"Hillary's successful efforts in Pennsylvania and Ohio suggest that Obama may have real trouble with these important states."

Please explain why you think this to be the case. This is a line the Clinton camp has been spinning for months, and not a single person has been able to explain why Obama's showing in a Democratic primary in a particular state has any relation to his likelihood of success in that state in a general election.

John, neither Ohio nor PA are shoo-ins for a Democrat. When it appears that one candidate - in this case, Obama - is having trouble courting a particular Democratic cohort in those states, when that group sizably backs the other candidate, when that group has shown a willingness to vote Republican in the past, and when exit polls suggest that many of these folks will indeed back McCain, I think there's something to worry about.
