Changing the Subject

In 25 minutes of remarks in Ohio tonight, Senator Clinton never mentioned Wisconsin or her loss there.  Nor did she congratulate Senator Obama (though she later congratulated him by phone, both campaigns confirm to CNN).Instead, she sold a very labor friendly message ("I’ve long been a critic of the shortcomings of NAFTA") and attacked Obama to an excited Youngstown, crowd that at one point chanted, "Hill-a-ry!".

It’s possible this audience still did not know the results of the Wisconsin primary.  The crowd was waiting in this room for several hours and there’s nary a tv in sight.

Still, it seemed quite a disconnect.
