Pennsylvania keeps Hillary Clinton in the Race

The Primary in Pennsylvania has not decided the Democratic nomination. It goes on to Indiana and North Carolina on May 6. This is not really a surprise. An Obama victory may have clinched him the nomination, but he is not strong in Pennsylvania and could not use his momentum to overcome his deficit there.
