Dems continue war of attrition

Halperin has a concise media roundup of the reax to yesterday's Pennsylvania primary win for Hillary:

NY Times: Primary highlighted “concerns about Mr. Obama’s strengths as a general election candidate. Exit polls again highlighted the racial, economic, sex and values divisions within the party.”

Washington Post: “Her margin was decisive, but even some of her most loyal supporters privately expressed doubts last night that she can prevail in the long battle against Obama.”

LA Times: “Clinton’s victory Tuesday left in play the same questions that remained seven weeks ago after her 10-point victory in Ohio.” The number to watch: 43 - the percentage of Clinton voters who say they’ll stay home or vote for McCain is Obama is the nominee.

Politico: For all the campaigning and money spent, Clinton won “with the same base of white women, working-class voters and white men that revived her candidacy in Ohio.”

Obama memo also calls race “virtually unchanged.” Read it here.
