When Carville Has Concerns About Clinton Campaigns, Clinton Supporters Should Worry
Nothing says campaign trouble for Hillary Clinton like concern coming from longtime Clinton loyalist and well-known political strategist James Carville.
According to a recent article at NewsMax:
Even longtime Clinton ally James Carville is acknowledging that Hillary is in trouble, saying that if she loses the March 4 primary in either Texas or Ohio, her campaign is doomed.
Speaking at the International Builders Show in Florida on Wednesday, Carville — a top adviser to Bill Clinton in the 1990s — declared:
“She’s behind. Make no mistake. If she loses either Texas or Ohio, this thing is done.”
Obviously, this is information that we have known all along, but it almost seems as if this is Carville’s way to make an easy transition to throwing his support behind Obama should Clinton not have solid victories in Texas or Ohio.
I think this is just one of many “Clintonittes” who appear to be getting ready to jump ship, or preparing for what could become a likely situation of Clinton leaving the race if Obama continues to rise in the polls.
Tomorrow’s Wisconsin primary is going to be extremely important for both campaigns. For Obama, this is a primary that he is expected to win and Clinton seems to be pessimistic about the outcome as well.
However, Wisconsin is a very unique state, with a small black population and a large number of traditionally undecided voters who don’t make up their minds until the day of the election. Should Clinton win, I think she will get the momentum she needs for solid victories in the upcoming primaries.
But, with a Clinton loss, she’s going to have to throw some heavy dirt at Obama or bring out some really big guns to join her on the trail.
