Is this approach really going to keep her voters on side?
With just one week and one day to go before the crucial Texas and Ohio primaries Hillary Rodham Clinton has stepped up the rhetoric with this speech overnight.
It look as though the strategy is to do everything she can to get her core voters, mostly elder women, out to vote. Could it be that like in New Hampshire in early January this will boost turnout.
The trouble is that she looks like a poor loser and that the attacks will just reinforce the desire of Obama supporters to make sure that they vote.
In the betting there has been a slight easing in the Obama price.
