News Analysis Options Dwindling for Clinton
New York Times - United States
That higher number reflects the full inclusion of Florida and Michigan, which held their primaries before the date permitted by the Democratic Party. ...

Despite narrowly winning Indiana, while losing North Carolina, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton did not fundamentally improve her chances of securing the Democratic presidential nomination. If anything, Mrs. Clinton’s hopes for overtaking Senator Barack Obama dwindled further on Tuesday night. Clinton was unable on Tuesday to build her base of support substantially beyond the white, working-class voters who had sustained her for the last month. That will not be lost on the superdelegates, the elected Democrats and party leaders who will ultimately decide this fight.

And the superdelegates are where the fight is moving: after 50 nominating contests, there are only 6 left, with just 217 pledged delegates left to be elected, not enough to get either of them over the 2,025 threshold necessary to win the nomination.

Analysis- Primaries provide a new chapter in an old story
Scranton Times-Tribune - PA, USA
So it is becoming increasingly clear that the party's superdelegates - elected officials and party insiders - will be the ones who decide the nominee. ...

WASHINGTON - It seems almost laughable to think that one of the bigger worries at the beginning of the Democratic presidential race was that it would be over too soon.

Now it is like watching two punch-drunk fighters in a slow-motion montage of the glancing blows, the same frames over and over, both wobbly but still standing.

Tuesday's primaries in North Carolina and Indiana, which Sen. Hillary Clinton claimed as a split decision, make only one thing clear: The race goes on, with no tidy end in sight.

But Sen. Barack Obama emerged with a clear advantage. His crushing victory in North Carolina, the biggest delegate prize of the night, increases his lead, and the narrow race in Indiana will help defuse the argument that he can't win the votes of working-class whites. But by holding on in hopes of a win in Indiana, Mrs. Clinton did well enough to credibly rebut any calls for her to quickly cede the race.

So it is becoming increasingly clear that the party's superdelegates - elected officials and party insiders - will be the ones who decide the nominee.

The main question is how soon they do it.

Polyticker: Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton have “declared their determination to escalate U.S. military action in the Middle East, disagreeing mainly over which country should be targeted first,” San Francisco’s Independent Media Center assails. With “the threat of terrorism always present, I’m resting better at night knowing that we may have a person in the White House with battlefield experience. After all, Hillary Clinton has dodged sniper fire on the runway in Bosnia,” Norman Shaughnessy snipes himself in the Grand Rapids Press. “Obama wants to sit down with an Iranian leader who is dedicated to wiping Israel off the map — his words. I don’t think we should give him that kind of prestige,” the AP’s Libby Quaid quotes from John McCain’s dissection of his Dem opponent’s security experience. A group of Arab-American and Muslim leaders want McCain’s campaign to apologize for cutting ties with an Arab-American businessman serving on his Michigan finance committee, AP also recounts.
