Barack Obama wins 4 states, 1 Territory

Obama Wins Big

Barack Obama has swept 4 states in the presidential primaries: Louisiana, Washington, Nebraska, and Maine. He also won in the Virgin Islands. Obama seems to have a slight advantage over Clinton in the remaining primaries. Texas will be important since it is a large state with a large Hispanic population who seem to be favoring Clinton over Obama. Ohio will also be a big test. Some have said that the race will be decided by whomever the Democratic Party's "Super Delegates" choose. These are the Democrats elected to state and national offices as well as party officials. This has been the most exciting presidential race I've seen in years. Many of my students are getting into it, something that hase't happened in the years I have been involved in public education.
