INDIANAPOLIS -- So much for the double whammy.
Barack Obama's apparently sizable win tonight in the North Carolina primary has sapped a fair amount of energy from Hillary Clinton's election night party here in Indiana. It's not glum, exactly, but it's not exuberant, either. There is also, surprisingly, a good amount of empty space in the event hall.
As they await the Indiana results, Clinton supporters are chanting "I believe in Hillary" and other boosterish phrases. But ever since a giant "boo" went up after CNN called North Carolina for Obama, there has not been much electricity. Perhaps a big Indiana win will change that, but it's already been tempered by the Tar Heels.
