AP: Clinton loaned herself $6.4m  —  INDIANAPOLIS — The Associated Press has confirmed this morning what many have been wondering in recent days: that Hillary Clinton, short on cash, long on debts, and facing a steep climb to the Democratic nomination, loaned herself another $6.4 million over the past month.
Andrew Malcolm / Top of the Ticket:
Hillary and Bill Clinton in defeat and victory: When pictures tell the story  —  Just look at his face!  —  Doesn't William Jefferson Clinton look absolutely delighted with his wife's Democratic presidential primary victory in Indiana?  —  Sure the Clinton campaign (Hillary's) had hoped to do much better in North Carolina.

Thomas M. Defrank / NY Daily News:
Ugly truth why Hillary Clinton won't quit  —  While the case for Hillary Clinton to stay in the race is shakier than ever, one ugly reason for staying in could be found Tuesday amid the ruddy, sun-kissed Hoosiers who cheered her on to victory at the Indianapolis Speedway.
Adam Nagourney / New York Times:
Clinton's Options Seem to Dwindle  —  In this case, a split was not a draw.  —  Despite narrowly winning Indiana, while losing North Carolina, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton did not fundamentally improve her chances of securing the Democratic presidential nomination.

Obama Wins; How Does Clinton Lose?  —  Barack Obama is, by almost every measure and by almost every unmeasurable impression, on the precipice of being able to declare victory and have his declaration be accepted by the media and his party.  Hillary Clinton needed to find a way to give superdelegates their …

BUNCHES OF SUPERS  —  George Stephanopoulos on “Good Morning America”: “More superdelegates will come out today for Barack Obama -they will come three, four, five at a time, and this nomination will be locked up.”
New York Times:
It's About the White House  —  Like many Americans, we have been intrigued and often exasperated by the long-running Democratic primary and the ever smaller-bore spats between Senators Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama.  So we are thankful to Senator John McCain for reminding us Tuesday …

The Tie Has Been Broken  —  Yep, I'm still up.  Sorry it's taken me so long to weigh in with a sort of post-mortem on tonight, this has taken me longer to compose than I had expected and I now realize I should have put an overnight thread up.  I look forward to hearing everyone's thoughts - Todd

Deacon / Power Line:
“THE BIGGEST FAIRY TALE EVER” IS ABOUT TO COME TRUE  —  Hillary Clinton held on to win the Indiana primary by a bit more than 20,000 votes, and two percentage points.  Losing a neighboring state isn't usually a path to nomination, but in these circumstances it may well be enough effectively to end the hopes of his rival.
James Kirchick / The Politico:
