(Newser) – If Hillary Clinton pulls off another landslide in today's Kentucky primary, she can make a stronger case to superdelegates that she's more "electable" than Barack Obama. With this in mind, here are five things to watch, via Politico:

  1. John Edwards: Will the former NC senator's endorsement make a difference to Kentucky's mostly white, working-class voters?
  2. Race: Demographics-wise, Kentucky looks a lot like West Virginia, where race might have been a factor in Obama's loss.
  3. Louisville: Both candidates have their supporters; turnout will be key.
  4. Time zones: Kentucky has two, and a strong showing by Obama in EST-land will make the race seem closer than it is at first.
