Wow– with Wisconsin and Hawaii, Obama has ten victories in a row.  Of course, as we learned from the Pats season, that doesn’t mean that you’ve wrapped up the big prize.

 It looks to me like Democratic voters have been, over the last couple of months, slowly giving themselves permission to vote for Obama.  Last year Hillary was consistently outpolling him; she seemed like the safe choice.  But once he started winning, people slowly decided that he was actually viable.  With each set of primaries he breaks more barriers.  He’s won over voters in all areas of the country; he’s getting white votes; now he’s beating Hillary among men and among low-income voters.

 Hillary does not seem to be rising to the occasion.  Her response seems to be to go negative and start thinking about dirty tricks (like counting the Michigan delegates Obama didn’t compete for).
