Hillary Poised To Win W.Va.; But . . .

Updated: Thursday, May 15, 2008, 7:36 am -- In what some are calling the first sign of the post-feminist future, NARAL, the abortion rights organization, rejected Hillary Clinton to endorse Barack Obama for president.

Updated: Wednesday, May 14, 2008, 8:33 am -- She won in a landslide! But . . .

"Obama campaigned lightly in the state, conceding defeat in advance while looking ahead to the Oregon primary later in the month and the fall campaign against John McCain, the Republican nominee-in-waiting. West Virginia had 28 delegates at stake, to be awarded proportionally according to the popular vote."

Sen. Clinton will win handily in West Virginia, but still is trailing in polling and delegates behind Sen. Obama. Of course, such a win is already being characterized as "racist," even though there are likely people who disagree with Mr. Obama on issues and align themselves more with Mrs. Bill Clinton.

She's also getting some warnings from her fellow democrats. "Don't embarrass us" is the phrase of the day. And then there's this conundrum.
