The article offers updates on U.S. Senator Hillary Clinton's campaign for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination. Clinton has now lost 10 straight contests to Senator Barack Obama since Super Tuesday. Clinton's best chance to get the nomination is to win Ohio, Texas, and Pennsylvania in April, and get a majority of the 795 "super-delegates" to support her over Obama. Meanwhile, Clinton has been increasing her criticisms of Obama, even arguing that Obama plagiarized a speech by Governor Deval Patrick of Massachusetts.
