    Clinton wins Indiana handily while Obama wins NC, specifically along racial lines. No surprise. What would be a surprise, Clinton stays close in NC or actually wins it.

    to the left wingers if whites vote for hillary they are racist, but if almost all blacks vote black, then that is normal...

    90% of the black vote, no, perfectly normal and obama being black has nothing to do with it, nope -- clearly we have racists voting

    Look at the NC and Indiana county maps. Obama is winning the urban areas and Clinton the rural. Probably not a surprise but interesting.

    Apparently, CNN was right. At 9:30pm, Obama was leading by 20% in NC and trailing by 6% in IN.

    Depends on what areas have been counted. The big cities are full of blacks that are likely to vote for Obama. Her advantage was in the rural areas, but the numbers were against her, the cities hold more people and were expected to go heavily for Obama. She would be lucky to get 10 percent in those areas and it would be an upset if she got 20.

    Man, voters sure are racist. Can't we make it a hate crime to vote for someone of your own race?

    Interesting when you consider those were the exact demographs vote-wise in 2000 and 2004.
