In Pennsylvania, Senator Clinton used up her last, best chance to cut into Barack Obama's elected delegate lead. She came up short.

In fact, she barely made a dent. At most, she picked up a net gain of 12 delegates -- less than our gain in Colorado, Kansas or Virginia.

But there is one measure by which her campaign's gains are real. The Clinton campaign claims they've raised more than $3.5 million since the polls closed yesterday. We can't afford to let that go unanswered.

That's why I just made a donation to Barack's campaign, and I hope you'll join me and support our movement with a contribution of $25:

Much of that inability to make up ground is the fault of the proportional delegate assignment. She had a big win (10 points is a big win by any standard) and yet got a small margin of delegates.

The real problem is when will Sen. Obama win a big state? NY, CA, TX, NJ, OH, PA, FL...outside of IL (his home state) he has not won a single big state. That has got to worry his campaign for the general election. They may not admit that they are worried...but they are...or they should be.

I don't agree that they should be. With a united Democratic party working together in the general election he takes the big states too. In an Obama v. McCain general election the dynamics are different than in an Obama v Clinton primary.

The rest, your point too I feel, is the result of primary season spin by talking heads that repeat each others, and the campaign's talking points. I can understand how they come to it. I just don't find it valid.
