Its just like the Comics. The story is about Rick, it revolves around him.
Even in TWD you cant just kill off the main people. Sure every now and then a main character will die because it adds drama and suspense, but TWD comics/TV show would be nothing without Rick. Because its a story about his life. So with the game its a story of Clems life.
I recall reading in an interview(or maybe it was letter hacks) that Kirkman plans to kill Rick in the comics before they are over, and he already feels like Carl can lead.
I think the odds of Clem dying are more likely this time around. What would be more emotionally devastating after losing Lee? For many, it would be losing Clementine. Sure, we can meet new characters in season 2, grow to love them and be heartbroken when they die, but we'll still have a ton of extra time invested with Clem from the first season that the new ones won't have.
Currently Clem is the only survivor who has been with us through every single episode(and is still guaranteed to be alive, for now). Maybe it's different for others, but for me that adds a lot of weight to a character when I've spent a lot of time getting to know and appreciate(or resent) them. The longer they're there, the more broken up I'll be when they're gone.
For example, i doubt many of us would have felt as sad as we were when Carley/Doug died in episode 3 than we would if they were not chosen in episode 1. Since Clem has been there since the beginning, as it stands i think her death would have the highest emotional impact.
