FROM THIS EPISODE

It’s more and more likely that Barack Obama will be the first black nominated for president by a major American party. Conversely, Hillary Clinton probably won’t be the first woman. Tonight, what’s the psychological impact in LA’s African American community where Obama has not been the unanimous choice? What about politically-minded women for whom it’s gender that counts? On Reporter’s Notebook, holdouts for Clinton in Hollywood.

Main Topic How is Obama victory playing out in Los Angeles? 18 MIN

Hillary Clinton's looking for a big win tomorrow in West Virginia, and she claims she'll have totaled more popular votes than Barack Obama by the time it's all over. That would have to include votes from Florida and Michigan, which are still in legal limbo. In any case, most surveys say that Obama now has more elected delegates and super delegates, and that he’s wrapped up the nomination.
