Sen. Hillary Clinton said her job is "to do the best I can" in response to recent comments by Democratic strategist James Carville that she’s behind in the ’08 race and must win upcoming primaries in Ohio and Texas to continue on. Carville, an unpaid consultant to Sen Clinton’s campaign, previously led Bill Clinton’s ’91 presidential bid to White House victory.

"These two states are big states and are very reflective of our population as a country.  And I’m going to do the very best I can to be successful in both of them," the New York senator told ABC New’s Kate Snow this morning on Good Morning America.

Asked if Carville was right to put so much emphasis on  Ohio and Texas, Clinton said her campaign is "making progress every day" on the road to the 2025 Democratic delegates needed to secure the nomination.

"We are forging ahead and obviously we want to do well. That’s why we are here," Clinton said. "We’re running a vigorous campaign. We have a lot of support and we are going to be here working hard until we find out what happens on March the 4th.

Earlier this week, in a panel at the International Builders Show, Democratic strategist James Carville said of Clinton, "She’s behind. Make no mistake. If she loses either Texas or Ohio, this thing is done."
