Both the Clinton and Obama camps expected Hillary Clinton to take Maine — but thus far with 44% of precincts in, Obama is leading by 15 points. (AP has now called Maine a win for Obama)
I think the Clinton camp has huge strengths out there in big states — but these small state losses are at minimum psychologically seductive.
I think that the shake-up in Hillary Clinton’s camp in which Patti Solis Doyle has “stepped down” (I’ve heard two different terms today from senior Hillaryland citizens to describe her departure and have decided to go with the one that implies “free will”) is about a month overdue.
