Hillary Lowers Expectations For Wyoming Caucuses Today

But wait, I thought she was the comeback kid? I thought she shocked the world on Tuesday? Shouldn’t she be rolling to victory after victory now? Why does Obama have a better shot at winning?

From AP:

CHEYENNE, Wyo. – A day before Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama were to compete for a small scattering of delegates in Wyoming, Clinton cast herself as the underdog and said the odds are not in her favor. Clinton’s campaign has sought to set low expectations for the Saturday caucuses in Wyoming as well as next week’s primary in Mississippi, states where her campaign believes Obama has a better shot at winning.

“I said, ‘Well you know what, I’m going to go to Wyoming anyway — I know it’s an uphill climb, I’m aware of that,” Clinton told an audience of more than 1,500 at a community college in Cheyenne. “But, you see, I am a fighter, and I believe it’s worth fighting for your votes.”

Oh wait, I know. Because Hillary and her team didn’t plan for anything after Super Tuesday so they had no organization in Wyoming. Because they assumed she was the heir apparent. Because they were arrogant.

I’ve asked it before, but I’ll ask it again: is this the team we want in the White House? Especially after 8 years of awful planning?
