Obama in California?

OBAMA IN CALIFORNIA?….Ezra Klein comments on results from a new Zogby poll showing Barack Obama ahead of Hillary Clinton in California:

They track with what I’m hearing on the ground out there, even though, fundamentally, it remains hard for me to believe Obama can actually take the Golden State.

I’m not hearing anything in particular from my particular patch of ground, but I don’t have any trouble believing Obama could win here. In fact, he seems like just the kind of candidate California Democrats would normally get pretty excited about. Hillary obviously has fairly deep pockets of support here, but I certainly won’t be shocked if Obama pulls out a victory.
