Hillary Clinton prides herself on how well she handles difficult situation. She should have no problems this weekend then. She will be dealing with the stress of knowing that early next week her presidential campaign could come to a crashing halt.
Barack Obama is riding the wave of his message of change all across America, and voters are believing what he stands for. He has won eleven states in a row.
Victories in either Texas or Ohio this upcoming week could be all he needs to put him well on his way to being the Democratic presidential candidate.
Clinton started out this campaign as the clear front runner from the Democratic side, but Obama currently has the momentum, and is now steamrolling his way towards the nomination.
Texas and Ohio could be the last stand for Clinton. Should she win both states, she still would have a hard time winning, but it would be a better shot than she currently has.
If she loses either of the upcoming states, it could be the end of the road for her and her campaign. The races in both states are tight according to polls taken. Clinton is holding an eight point lead in Ohio, but Obama is perceived to be slightly ahead in Texas.

Five years ago, Thunderbird Resorts Inc., wanted to open a casino in Baguio City, Philippines. The city did not want the casino at the time. It may have turned out to be a poor decision by the city.

The company claims that sixty percent of their customers come from Baguio. Why then, did the area not want a casino five years ago.
Mayor Reinaldo Bautista Jr. says that Baguio has never wanted a casino in their city. The government there has turned down numerous proposals over a ten year span for casinos.
The current location of the Thunderbird casino is just an hour away from Baguio. The casino is said to draw between 1,000 to 2,000 people a day, and is prospering from clients from the city that did not want them.
The company is pleased with the current location. they even signed a lease contract for a resort. They have already began the project and are planning stage of the resort two worth $16 million in the near future.
