Obama, Hillary Swap Wins In N.Carolina, Indiana

Item: Obama wins North Carolina, Clinton leads in Indiana/Associated Press

More Info: Returns from 99 percent of North Carolina precincts showed Obama winning 56 percent of the vote to 42 percent for Clinton, a triumph that mirrored his earlier wins in Southern states with large black populations. That made Indiana a virtual must-win Midwestern contest for the former first lady, who was hoping to counter Obama’s persistent delegate advantage with a strong run through the late primaries. Returns from 92 percent of the state’s precincts showed Clinton with 51 percent of the vote to 49 percent for Obama.

Question: Will the tough race with Hillary Clinton, help or hurt Barack Obama if/when he gets the Demo nomination in his race with John McCain?
