Clinton's cattle futures are off the table, while Obama looks strong in North Carolina.

Today's installment of campaign-related news items that wouldn't generate a post of their own, but may be of interest to political observers:
The Obama campaign has ruled out going after Hillary Clinton on '90s-era controversies, such as Whitewater and cattle futures. Good to know.
Barack Obama continues to look like the favorite in North Carolina, where SurveyUSA shows him ahead by 9 percentage points, 50 percent to 41 percent.
On a related note, Obama also got a boost in North Carolina Tuesday, when 29 state legislators, including the Senate majority leader and the former House speaker, endorsed him.
Clinton will likely get a net gain of between 10 and 12 delegates as a result of her victory in Pennsylvania.
Obama picked up another superdelegate this morning: "Oklahoma Gov. Brad Henry endorsed Barack Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination Wednesday, calling him an inspirational leader who can unite the country."
The Republican National Committee and the McCain campaign are reportedly urging the North Carolina Republican Party to drop a scurrilous new campaign ad.
Speaking of McCain, he won 73 percent of the Republican vote in Pennsylvania yesterday. Isn't that a little low?
Using results she previously said wouldn't count, Clinton is
now arguing she's ahead in the popular-vote count.
