Michael McNutt / Daily Oklahoman:
In Oklahoma: Henry backs Obama  —  Gov. Brad Henry, who said earlier he would not endorse a Democratic presidential candidate until this summer's national convention, announced this morning he is supporting Barack Obama.  —  The endorsement means Obama, a U.S. senator from Illinois …

Adam Nagourney / New York Times:
News Analysis: The Bruising Will Go on for the Party, Too  —  For better or worse — and many Democrats fear it is for worse — the race goes on.  —  Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton defeated Senator Barack Obama in Pennsylvania on Tuesday by enough of a margin to continue a battle …
Jeff Zeleny / New York Times:
Obama Shifting Focus From Clinton to McCain  —  EVANSVILLE, Ind. — Senator Barack Obama opened the next phase of his presidential campaign here Tuesday evening, seeking to turn his focus away from Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton and persuade party leaders that time is running out for Democrats …
Patrick Healy / New York Times:
Clinton Clearly Outduels Obama in Pennsylvania  —  Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton scored a decisive victory over Senator Barack Obama on Tuesday in the Pennsylvania primary, giving her candidacy a critical boost as she struggles to raise money and persuade party leaders to let the Democratic nominating fight go on.
Jonathan Weisman / Washington Post:
Obama's Gloves Are Off — And May Need to Stay Off  —  Unable once again to score a knockout, Sen. Barack Obama is likely to make his new negative tone even more negative — with a sharp eye on trying to end the Democratic presidential nomination fight after the May 6 primaries in Indiana and North Carolina.

Dems Fight On; Clinton Wins PA Primary
New York Times:
The Low Road to Victory  —  The Pennsylvania campaign, which produced yet another inconclusive result on Tuesday, was even meaner, more vacuous, more desperate, and more filled with pandering than the mean, vacuous, desperate, pander-filled contests that preceded it.

Rich Lowry / The Corner:
McCain's Stalking Horse?  —  If Hillary can't win the nomination—and it's clearly very, very hard for her—she's basically a stalking horse for McCain.  She's preparing the demographic ground for McCain, by getting white working-class Democrats used to (if you will) not voting for Obama.

Marc Ambinder:   Superdelegates For Obama — Sooner?
Andrew Malcolm / Top of the Ticket:
Breaking News (Updated): Ron Paul surges in Pa.  —  While some people pay attention to the alleged contest between Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama (and she won big), almost unnoticed is the Republican primary.  —  Many people think Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain has won the GOP nomination.

Yahoo! News:
McCain Loses 27% of Pennsylvania Vote  —  The Nation — Yes, of course, John McCain is the presumptive Republican nominee for president.  —  But don't think that means that grassroots Republicans — especially movement conservatives who have never really trusted the guy — are united in their support for the senator from Arizona.

Domenico Montanaro / MSNBC:
EXIT POLLS: A LOOK AHEAD
Hindrocket / Power Line:
THE FRIENDS OF BARACK OBAMA, PART 1  —  When Illinois State Senator Alice Palmer decided to retire in 1995, she hand-picked local left-winger Barack Obama as her successor.  In order to introduce Obama to influential liberals in the district, she held a function at the home of Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn.

Maureen Dowd / New York Times:
Wilting Over Waffles  —  He's never going to shake her off.  —  Not all by himself.  —  The very fact that he can't shake her off has become her best argument against him.  “Why can't he close the deal?”  Hillary taunted at a polling place on Tuesday.  —  She's been running ads about it …
Los Angeles Times:

Discussion: Power Line
Joe Bavier / Reuters:
Lynchings in Congo as penis theft panic hits capital  —  KINSHASA (Reuters) - Police in Congo have arrested 13 suspected sorcerers accused of using black magic to steal or shrink men's penises after a wave of panic and attempted lynchings triggered by the alleged witchcraft.
Tom Jensen / Public Policy Polling:
Where did we go wrong?  —  The networks have called it for Hillary and I think after Florida in 2000 they're not going to make that mistake again, so obviously our polls were wrong.  —  First off, please do not call us or e-mail us and tell us we suck!  We are well aware, and it does not feel good.

Andrew Sullivan / The Daily Dish:
The Worst Of All Worlds For The Dems  —  Right now, the actual results suggest what I thought would be the worst possible result for the Democrats: a nine point win for Clinton.  It doesn't change the race's dynamic or the math; but it will give Clinton just the tiniest sliver of an argument that she should not drop out.
Glenn Harlan Reynolds / New York Post:
GREEN & SMART  —  EARTH-SAVING DONE RIGHT  —  I HAVEN'T been able to get very excited about the big global-warming debate - but I am excited about some solutions to global warming.  These are just as worthwhile even if you don't believe that human-created climate change is a big problem, or even a reality.
