1.) Hillary wins both Ohio and Texas. I don't see how this doesn't send us into a six-week-long battle for Pennsylvania.Don't let Noam's double negative fool you: We'll have a long battle for Pennsylvania.
2.) Hillary wins Ohio; Obama wins Texas. Hillary's inclination will be to fight on (witness her recent remarks about "just getting warmed up"). And the press will let her do it for a couple of days. But i just don't see how she sustains it....i sure do.
3.) Obama wins both Ohio and Texas. I see almost no chance of this happening after NAFTA-gate.Oh, yes: NAFTA-gate. I need to post on that. It's a terrible screw-up by Obama.
Anyway, in this scenario, Noam expects Hillary to concede. What if it's close? What about the poor people of Pennsylvania? Shouldn't they have their say? I won't believe she's out until she says it.
