McCain's apparent coronation and Clinton's supposed deathwatch

Sen. Barack Obama won the Wisconsin and Hawaiian primaries as expected, while McCain captured Washington and Wisconsin. McCain's name is now frequently preceded by the words "presumptive nominee." His front-running status also means more donations are coming in.

Obama? Still in a tight fight with Clinton, though articles frequently note he has now won 10 primaries in a row. Indicative of the closeness of the Democratic race – the delegate count is about even – the Clinton and Obama camps are still squabbling over the accusation of plagiarism by Obama. Gov. Deval Patrack (D-MA), whose words Obama borrowed, has begun speaking out on national outlets about it.

With yesterday's results, media analysis now centers on Clinton's future: Will the Texas and Ohio primaries on March 4 be her latest comeback, or her undoing?
