Trouble ahead?

It's the story behind the story that grabs your attention in the "Potomac Primary" results.

As the Washington Post notes:
Obama won among men, among women and among union voters. He won big among the affluent, educated voters in the District's suburbs, but he also won convincingly among rural voters and small-town Democrats.
In other words, huge hunks of groups who had solidly backed Hillary Clinton.

And on the flip side, The Post notes:
But even as he dominated the Potomac Primary, McCain lost conservatives in Virginia, as he has across the South and parts of the Midwest -- trailing Huckabee among that group and evangelicals as he attempts to unite a fractured Republican Party behind his candidacy.
The 2008 dynamic may be starting to come into sharper focus.
