* Obama is counting on the reality of the math, and might actually come away with more delegates than Hillary from Tuesday; Hillary’s end-game strategy is an issue, except for on Tuesday night when a win was a win. I claim the BCS as the operative sports metaphor for this numbers racket.
* Ohio is Old America (“the four-door Buick of the country, not particularly exciting but clinging to the hope that it is durable and safe”), Texas is New America.
* Are you a Hillary supporter who’s tired of not being able to spend money on cutting-edge political tchotchkes? Get the Marc Jacobs Hillary shirt.
* Tim Jones has a good piece on poverty and voting in Ohio.
* Marin talks Rezko on NBC5. Nothing new but the slo-mo perp walk is a nice touch.
* John McCain used the phrase “my friends” 11 times in his victory speech. Get used to it, it’s going to be a long seven months.
* BusinessWeek assures America that it’s actually OK if a Democrat wins. What good is money if you can’t inspire terror in your fellow man? Always fun finding out what the other .1% thinks.
* How to Inspire People Like Obama Does (caution: may not work in Ohio). “2. Alliteration. Both Kennedy and King were fond of this device that strings together words that start with similar sounds.”
