A Game-Changer, No Doubt

Hillary Clinton and I finally agree on something. No, not her Republican gas tax plan, but that Tuesday's North Carolina primary is going to be a "game-changer."

Over the weekend in Kinston, N.C., Clinton said, "This is going to make a huge difference in what happens going forward. The entire country -- probably even a lot of the world -- is looking to see what North Carolina decides."

This statement echoes Clinton surrogate George Stephanopoulos, who at the end of March said that unless Clinton wins North Carolina he didn't "think it could happen" for her. Even USA Today gave the front page to a story called "Why the Democratic race could end in North Carolina," referring to the state's primary as "a pivotal final showdown."

The question now becomes, with a loss in North Carolina, will the Clinton campaign continue? Will the media finally start telling the truth, that she has no path to the nomination? We'll know more when the numbers and the spin start coming in Tuesday evening.
