WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The next Democratic showdowns on May 6 give Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton one more chance to change the course of their grueling presidential fight before party insiders take over in June to try to settle it. A sweep of the two states by either candidate could dramatically shift a Democratic race that has been filled with potentially decisive moments that ultimately decided nothing. For Obama, the front-runner who has missed potential knockout punches before, a sweep would dash Clinton’s hopes of catching him in delegates and negate her arguments she would be the best Democrat to face Republican John McCain in November.
