I've been writing recently about the big drop in support for Obama nationwide (and in Pennsylvania). If you want to read an excellent article on why Hillary is gaining -- and should stay in the race -- click on the following link:

The article is by Lanny J. Davis, a Clinton friend and fundraiser. It's titled, "Obama and Clinton in a Dead Heat: Will the Media Analyze Why?"

Here's a snippet from the Davis piece: "In the three-day ongoing Gallup Poll of 1,252 Democratic and Democratic-leaning independent voters, from Thursday-Saturday April 17-19, Senator Obama leads by 47% to 45%. Because that 2-point edge is within the 3% margin of error, it means Hillary Clinton is now in a statistical head heat with Barack Obama.This represents a dramatic drop by Senator Obama among Democrats and independent leaners of about 9% in less than a week — a drop that Gallup says began just before the recent ABC debate, and that continued and has leveled off as of Saturday."

Davis asks: will the media analyze the changing Democratic race? The short answer is: no. That's because most of the media remains enamored of Obama, a deeply flawed candidate with a "closet" jam-packed with skeletons.
