Put on your dancing shoes because this week's Ohio-Texas Two-Step is probably the most important vote yet in the Democratic nomination contest.

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's (D-N.Y.) campaign has sought to downplay expectations but that is an impossible task at this point. With Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) having claimed victory in the past 11 contests -- don't forget Democrats Abroad! -- Clinton must prove to voters, activists and super delegates that this is still a two-way race.

How she does that remains an open question. Her husband -- and many unaffiliated Democratic strategists -- believe that Clinton must win both Ohio and Texas in order to avoid an avalanche of support going to Obama and an increase in pressure on her to leave the contest. If she wins just one state (Ohio seems more likely at the moment), will it be enough?

We'll know in 48 hours or so. Looking to vote on something before then? We're searching for a theme song for The Fix. Let your voice be heard.
