    By Athina Saloustrou

    Barack Obama scored nine wins his last one in Wisconsin leading over Hilary Clinton 58% to 41%$ while in the Republican camp John MacCain continued his winning course in another two states. "The change we seek is still months and miles away," Obama said at a rally in Houston while he is now focusing on the crucial presidential nomination races of March 4th taking place in Texas and Ohio where according to polls Hilary Clinton is on the lead. "It is going to require something more, because the problem that we face in America today is not a lack of good ideas, its that Washington has become a place where good ideas go to die," Obama said after Wisconsin where he took 38 nominating delegates over Clintons 27. Illinois former senator has ensured 1.323 delegates 168 of whom are considered "super delegates". Clinton follows with 1.252, winning 239 "super delegates". That means that they are former presidents, Governors who are free to vote whoever they want. In order for a Democratic candidate to win in the presidential nominating elections he/she needs 2.025 delegates at least. Obama is expected to ensure en easy victory in his born state Hawaii where polls opened at 7:00 (Greece Hour).
