North Carolina: Republicans for Clinton

Yet Mr. Obama also faces challenges ahead: According to Republican Party officials, party members in North Carolina -- which holds its primary on May 6 -- are considering running an advertisement against Mr. Obama that highlights his ties to controversial figures like his former pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. That ad could have the effect of adding a racially divisive element to that Southern state's primary.
Hmmm. Is this perhaps a clue against whom the other side would prefer to run? Republicans don't tend to do favors for Democrats they fear, as the last few decades have shown to satisfaction.
Or maybe, haha, Hillary is just rather adept at uniting people around her other than in determined opposition. >>>
Meddling interference from the enemy in propping up our weakest candidate aside, loyal Democrats can look forward to the May 6th contests in North Carolina and Indiana with hope for a resolution of the interminable primary. They are the two largest states left, and both favor Obama in recent polling, Indiana with slightly smaller margins.
In fact, Indiana - where there are no current reports on plans by the dark side to intervene - may just be the final frontier. From the article linked above:
The Indiana primary, on the same day, poses another make-or-break moment for Mrs. Clinton, according to several of her advisers, who said they would urge her to quit the race if she lost that state.
Tarheels and Hoosiers, Clinton's staff just made you an offer you can't refuse.
