West Virginia, Obama's Waterloo?

Hillary has buried Obama in West Virginia. If nothing else this highlights Barack's weakness with certain segments of America. Only 25 percent of Clinton backers say they'd be satisfied if Barack Obama was the nominee and only 38 percent of Clinton's voters said they would vote for Obama in a general election matchup against John McCain.

In West Virginia, Clinton won among men and women. She carried a majority of voters in every age group. She captured liberals, moderates, and conservatives. She took a majority in every income bracket. This should may bells and whistles go off among the super delegates. However, politicians on both sides are notorious for hearing only what supports their agenda (read bs).

Obama will probably get the nomination, but it may well cost the Democrats the election.
