This lead in momentum is making the Clinton camp call Obama the "establishment" [which is obviously is not in this race], while at the same time criticizing his "inexperience". The two can't go hand-in-hand.
Former aide to John Edwards, Mark Kornblau, said "
[Obama will] be the underdog and the challenger until the day Hillary steps aside." No matter how many states he seems to be winning; until Clinton decides it's over for her, that is when the insurgent overcomes that underdog status.
