Will you look at Texas?
Better opinions than mine say that Obama cannot win Texas — or rather that's is not worth the money he would have to pour into it. Still, of all Hillary's so-called firewall states, Texas was the one he cracked. I wondered at the time whether there wasn't a certain amount of Bush-shame at work in the state. Obama is spending money there, has a significant ground operation in place, and recently told the NYT “A place that I’ve come to love, which I did not expect until this campaign, is Texas. I ended up loving Texas." Supposedly, he's got his eye on helping out Democrat in the senate race. Hmm.
