2008 Hillary For You and Me

Remember being told that only Hillary could carry those big, must-win swing states—your Ohios, your Floridas, your Pennsylvanias—and so we just had to support her? Goodbye to all that:
Just a few weeks after claiming the slot as the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, Sen. Barack Obama has overtaken Republican contender Sen. John McCain in a swing-state poll of Ohio, Florida and Pennsylvania voters… The poll, which surveyed 1,396 likely Ohio voters from June 9 to 16, found Obama edged out McCain in a match-up 48 percent to the Republican’s 42 percent.
In Florida, Obama leads McCain 47 percent to the Republican’s 43 percent, while he leads by a double-digit margin in Pennsylvania, 52 percent to McCain’s 40 percent.
