Obama versus Clinton, Obama Grand Wisdom, The Game Continues

Did Obama Play Patty Cakes While Clinton Punched Him In The Face as one black blogger questions?

Did Obama provide Hillary as one Washington Post writer says, "with seven more weeks to make the case that she is the more experienced and effective agent of change in advance of what is shaping up to be the crucial Pennsylvania primary ?"

As WaPo writer
Michael Abramowitz reports, "With more delegates in hand and some party leaders anxious to coalesce behind him, Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.) still has a more plausible path to the Democratic nomination than Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (N.Y.). But his path just got much rockier."

Speaking of Rockier, Check out The Washington Post article about Barack Obama's grandmother.

American shock jocks, dirty tricks masterminds and political bloggers: Beware the wrath of an 86-year-old Kenyan villager.

A frown replaces the dimpled beam of Sarah Hussein Obama, grandmother of Barack Obama, when asked on Wednesday about recent attacks on her grandson that include the spreading of rumors that he is secretly a Muslim and the repeated use of his middle name _ Hussein _ by a radio host at a rally for presumptive Republican nominee John McCain.

Note: from AAPP: see how the media had to place her middle name in the article.

"Untruths are told that don't have anything to do with what Barack is about," she said in the local Luo language, her gray hair smoothed neatly under a headwrap. "I am very against it."

Hillary Rodham Clinton won primaries Tuesday in Texas, Ohio and Rhode Island, halting Obama's winning streak. Obama won in Vermont.

Each twist and turn of the race is closely scrutinized, said Barack Obama's half-sister, Auma Obama. The family gathered in his grandmother's house on Tuesday night to watch the results come in on a television donated by a family friend, she said _ the grandmother's own simple house does not have one of its own.

"Barack's done extremely well and we're very proud of him," Auma Obama said when asked for a reaction to the losses on Tuesday. "This is like a football match. The game continues." More HERE
