With Feb. 5 gone and the Democratic race still undecided, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are looking to Tuesday's so-called Potomac Primary, then another big day March 4. Three states vote Saturday, but Tuesday offers bigger prizes in DC, Maryland, and Virginia. Obama is the odds-on favorite in heavily black DC and in Maryland, the AP reports.
Virginia is more of a toss-up demographically, but Obama has the backing of rising-star governor Tim Kaine. Neither candidate will likely KO the other next week, the New York Times adds, though momentum will be huge. The Dems will then look to March 4 as the potential closing round, with 534 delegates at stake in Texas, Ohio, Rhode Island, and Vermont.
