Super Tuesday Results Do Little to Separate Clinton and Obama

According to the media, Super Tuesday results were interesting, but did not declare clear front runners. Senator Hillary Clinton only has 41% of the delegates needed for the nomination, while Senator Barack Obama has 36%. The results in California and New Mexico have not yet been finalized.

There are big races to be had in Texas and Ohio that will put Obama and Clinton head to head in their fight for the Democratic nomination. Both the Obama and Clinton camps acknowledge that Senator Obama has an advantage in both races.

"There are a lot of working-class whites [in Ohio] and she feels she does extraordinarily well with that demographic," VandeHei said on CNN's "American Morning."

However, Pennsylvania is a state that Senator Clinton strongly feels that she can win.

"I look forward to continuing our campaign and our debates about how to leave this country better off for the next generation, because that is the work of my life," Clinton said.

Even though Hillary Clinton won the larger states such as California, New York and New Jersey, Senator Obama won more states in total, 13 to 8. Some argue that this shows that Obama has a tremendous amount of momentum in his campaign.

"There is one thing on this February night that we do not need the final results to know," Obama said. "Our time has come. Our movement is real. And change is coming to America."
