Getting uncomfortable

A Hillary superdelegate on what she must do at this point in the race for the Democratic nomination merely to remain in the race (not necessarily to win):

“She has to win both Ohio and Texas comfortably, or she’s out,” an anonymous superdelegate who currently supports Clinton.

She can't just win, but must win "comfortably." If she's out after performing uncomfortably, what would qualify as an "uncomfortable" win for her?

Dem primaries award delegates on a proportional basis. So her margin of victory has to be such that her portion of the delegates is enough to offset any lead Obama might have going inot the primary. It's not altogether clear whether she can do that. If she loses on Mar 4th, she might be done for. If she wins by only a few points it's still a race and perhaps a brokered convention. If she wins on March 4th with clear, commanding victories the race could very will be over.
