A Must Win?

As David Broder contends, the South Carolina primary may just be a must-win for Obama.
Whatever the outcome of Saturday's Democratic presidential primary here, the Illinois senator has the money and the organization to compete in the nearly two dozen states voting on Feb. 5. But as his first and only victory, in Iowa on Jan. 3, slips further into history, his strategists concede that Obama badly needs to demonstrate broad enough support to slow Hillary Clinton's progress toward the nomination.

And as AFP points out, Hillary may be conceeding as much, choosing to turn her sights toward Super Tuesday. Regardless, she's expected to come out agressively before it's all decided in South Carolina and will undoubtedly claim victory, win or lose, because of the artificially low expectations pushed by her campaign.
