WASHINGTON -- Hillary Rodham Clinton could be on the comeback trail after pulling off big wins in Tuesday's primaries. 

While Clinton clenched Ohio and Texas, Obama took the lead in Vermont.

"You know what they say-- as Ohio goes, so goes the nation," said Clinton. "Well, this
nation's coming back, and so is this campaign."

Obama said the math is still on his side when it comes to the number of delegates.

"We know this. No matter what happens tonight, we have nearly the same delegate
lead as we did this morning, and we are on our way to winning this nomination," said Obama on Tuesday.

Clinton hinted at the possibility of sharing the Democratic presidential ticket with Barack Obama, but said voters still have to decide the party nominee.

"That may be where this is headed, but of course we have to decide who is on the top of ticket. I think the people of Ohio very clearly said that it should be me," said Clinton.
