Exit polls in Texas showed Clinton winning late deciders by 23 pts.  The math might be against her but who cares.  Obama has plenty of time to stumble and the last three days show that Obama's momentum can be slowed.   Winning the popular vote in Ohio and Texas -- this far down the primary schedule -- is no small feat. 

Besides that, she has McCain and Huckabee as role models.  First, McCain who proved that if you hang out long enough, the other candidates may just hand you victory.   And second, Mike Huckabee, who set the precedent for staying in until your opponent reaches the official magic number of delegates.
