Texas, Ohio and Pennsylvania

The story so far has been "Independents go for Obama" but what they mean is "Independents who lean Democrat" have been voting for Obama.

In Texas and Ohio, Independents (and Republicans?) could vote in the Democratic primary, including Independents who are committed to vote for a Republican in the fall.

The Republicans have wanted to run against Clinton for years. A calculating Republican or right-leaning Independent, if they wanted to help McCain win in the fall, would vote for Hillary.

In Pennsylvania, Independents can not vote. They do, I'm afraid, have more than a couple weeks to change their registration.
