Was Clinton Right? Obama Campaign Questions their Ability to Win Ohio and Florida?

The AP reports "Obama campaign looks for way to win presidency without Ohio, Florida." The struggles the Obama faced in the primary are showing that Ohio may be a difficult state for Obama to win. The campaign is looking for other states that may provide the electorates to make up for an Ohio and Florida loss. McCain has polled well ahead in Florida and the Democratic Party's bumbling of the state's primary, as well as difficulty with the Jewish vote, has left Obama at a disadvantage. This may leave the Obama campaign with some difficult math as the some of the Northwest states that they've hoped to turn from red to blue do not have nearly the number of electorates Florida and Ohio do. It's interesting that the general election has barely started and Obama's electibility is coming into question within his own campaign.
