The Note: Wrighting the Ship

And: "If we thought that somehow there was a partial bloodletting that an endorsement would solve, that would be reason to do it. I don't think Vice President Gore or my husband think their endorsement would change that dynamic."

Courtesy of the Christian Broadcasting Network's David Brody, a fascinating answer to a question posed to Clinton about what she would ask God: "We know that you had your son suffer excruciatingly and he died for us and I can't thank you enough for that gift but so many people who seem so innocent have also suffered so much. Was there any point at which you thought you could perhaps just you know, reach out and just lessen it a little or did you expect us to do that?"

A new proposal (again) out of Michigan: "The 'Group of Four' neutral Democrats who have been working for months to solve the delegate issue sent a letter Tuesday proposing that Clinton get some delegate boost for winning the Jan. 15 primary, but acknowledging that the contest was less than fair because Obama was not on the ballot here," Gordon Trowbridge writes in the Detroit News. "Their plan would reduce the 18-delegate advantage Clinton would receive based on the primary to 10 delegates."

McClatchy's David Lightman looks at the extent -- and limits -- of Obama's financial advantage over Clinton. "Barack Obama is poised once again to dramatically outspend Hillary Clinton, this time in North Carolina and Indiana before next Tuesday's primaries there -- and once again, the imbalance may not matter," he writes.

Some punditry from Michael Dukakis, who knows something about winning the Democratic nomination: "If Obama wins both of those states on the sixth of May, I don't see how as a practical matter he doesn't have it," the former Massachusetts governor tells Steve Kornacki of the New York Observer. "All I can tell you is at this point it looks as if he is likely to be the nominee. . . . But, you know, funny things happen in this business. I can't tell you what they might be. All I can tell you is it ain't over till it's over."

The kicker:

"You've got the future president of the United States wide open." -- University of North Carolina basketball coach Roy Williams, at a pick-up game where members of his team joined Barack Obama -- and where the coach's presence may have broken NCAA rules, per the Raleigh News & Observer.
