This is an excerpt from CNN News.  So do not always curse Malaysia of having race elements in the election or in other things.  Food for thought, think before talking.

"The results in Pennsylvania followed trends set in previous contests: Clinton won the white vote, Obamawon the black vote; Clinton won the older vote, Obama won the younger vote; Clinton won in rural areas, Obama carried the urban vote. Video Watch what Obama's campaign says about the results »

Look for Clinton to head into upcoming contests with the message that Obama can't win in the big states like Pennsylvania and Ohio that Democrats will need to regain the White House.

The focus is now on the next two contests on May 6: Indiana and North Carolina. Polls show Obama has a comfortable lead in North Carolina but Clinton won't give up on the state. Her husband, former President Bill Clinton, will be campaigning there on Wednesday.

It's doubtful that Clinton can overtake Obama in North Carolina; he has won all the southern states and their large black populations except for Arkansas, where Clinton was first lady when Bill Clinton was governor.

But part of the reason the Clintons will campaign in North Carolina is to make it necessary for Obama to spend more time there and away from Indiana, where polls show a tight race.

Obama needs a victory in Indiana to prove that he can win a large rust-belt state to bolster his case that he can carry the states needed to beat Sen. John McCain, the presumptive Republican nominee.

Clinton has to cut into Obama's base to gain ground. And barring a major misstep by the Obama campaign, her best chance may hinge on attacking Obama and raising doubts in voters' minds.

Clinton's challenging Obama's electability is also aimed at Democratic superdelegates, the elected officials and party leaders who are free to vote for whichever candidate they choose.

With neither candidate able to reach the 2,025 delegates needed for the nomination, those superdelegates will decide who gets the nomination."

there is no doubt that race has played all importanat point in american politics. it has ran through the democrates since the primaries. if at all barack is white this primaries would have ended. we can see in pennsylvania that race was the result of the day. the old white guys who still leave under the belief that white is supprior to black shows u that. the young guys that want to say lets take this country to a new direction came out and made their point, even the blacks. for we international people, i dont see the reason america should be talking about other countries and their race problem without knowing that it stiill lies under their knows. i have been following this primary from day one and sometime ago hillary said that the press is against her but today any small word of truth that comes out of obama she pounce on it. the so called "bitter" word obama used, we understood it but politics played its role and people who wanted to be decieved by it were decived. are americanns not angry and bitter that their jobs are been shipped abroad, who will it be that will not be bitter. anyway is all politics. and at least america has also show the world that in all we white and blacks has nothing in common and still have a long way to go. may God help them both the black and white for them to see more than skin colour and tackle the problem facing america.
