Hillary Wins Pennsylvania

hclinton.jpgSenator Hillary Rodham Clinton seized on her decisive victory over Senator Barack Obama in Pennsylvania to proclaim “the tide is turning” in the Democratic nominating fight, arguing that her performance proved she was best suited to take on Senator John McCain in the fall because of her capacity to carry key swing states.
Mrs. Clinton won the Pennsylvania popular vote, 55 percent to 45 percent, giving her a critical boost as the she heads into the next nominating contests in North Carolina and Indiana in 13 days. Polls suggest that Mr. Obama is better positioned in those states than he was in Pennsylvania.
