As Goes Ohio, So Goes the Nation?

It's 10:00 p.m. Tuesday and they have called Ohio for Hillary Clinton, and it looks by about a 20 point margin. Regardless of how Texas goes, which we won't know until much later tonight, it seems, I think the issues that Hillary won on in Ohio are important: she mainly won by winning over working class people who are worried about the economy, and (ironically) NAFTA was a huge issue (ironic, of course, because it was one of Bill Clinton's big legacy points). Plus, Obama outspent Hillary from what I hear, although I'm not sure what that margin was.

If the economy and not the war is the key issue for both candidates in November, I like the GOP chances...

Looks like Obamentum is over. The press is now circling the "Obama-Resko" case with Obama refusing to release their e-mails. Not a good night for Dems.

I wonder when/how the RezkObama case will trickle down to other pols in Illinois? If I were running in Illinois, I wouldn't have my mug within a mile of Obama. The Rezko storm is brewing and photos with The Big-O might not be a good idea.
