Wins in Ohio, Texas, and Rhode Island for Hillary Clinton on Tuesday gave her the momentum she needed to continue in the race, although Barack Obama, who won Vermont, still holds a lead in delegates.
Said Clinton: “No candidate in recent history — Democratic or Republican — has won the White House without winning the Ohio primary. We all know that if we want a Democratic president, we need a Democratic nominee who can win Democratic states just like Ohio.”
This morning, on CBS’ The Early Show, Clinton hinted at a ‘dream ticket’ with Obama, saying “that may be where this is headed, but we have to decide who is on the top of the ticket.”
