Waffling On Vouchers Costs Obama Ohio

Obama_3 Did Obama's back and forth about vouchers cost him the Buckeye State?  There's absolutely no real evidence of that.  But that won't stop me from making it up.  Otherwise there's really no big education angle at all to Clinton's big comeback in Texas and Ohio last night.  And that would be sad. 

Made-up scenario:  Obama initially refuses to close the door on vouchers, but then makes a last minute attempt to paint himself as a big opponent as opposed to a curious critic.  Ohio teachers and other labor folks smell something fishy and stick with or switch back to Clinton (thanks in large part to unreported "push" polling on the part of the NEA), keeping the state in her hands.
