On media conference call, spokesman Wolfson and supporters bat away suggestions the campaign fears a loss to Obama.


Ohio Gov. Strickland:There’s no discouragement here on the ground in Ohio… I am very confident, and with every passing day I feel more encouraged….”


Wolfson: “‘Momentum’ is a media storyline. That is not an issue on which voters vote.”


Wolfson again knocks Obama on the experience issue, quoted old AP story and suggested Obama had changed his position on NAFTA as part of a pattern.


Speculation fueled by must-read WashPost story featuring stark pessimism from unnamed adviser. Read key section.


Wolfson’s reaction: “This storyline is nonsense. We are going to be successful on March 4 and Hillary Clinton will be the nominee of our party.”
