Kentucky Superdelegates Being Courted By Clinton, Obama Campaigns

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - When Moretta Bosley's phone rings, it
could be a Clinton or Obama calling.

As a Democratic superdelegate, the western Kentucky activist has
been courted by relatives of Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack
Obama in the historic struggle for their party's presidential
nomination.

In recent weeks, Bosley has heard from Bill and Chelsea Clinton
and from Obama's wife, Michelle.

"I'm a housewife and work at a restaurant," said Bosley, whose
family runs a well-known Owensboro barbecue eatery. "I never
dreamed that I would be in a position to know and meet presidential
candidates."

If the Democratic race remains a tossup, a lot more Kentuckians
will become familiar with Clinton and Obama. For a state best known
for the Kentucky Derby, the hottest political horse race in years
could still be in doubt when Kentucky has its primary election May
20. Oregon holds its primary the same day.

"It's going to be a really exciting time in Kentucky," said
state Democratic chairwoman Jennifer Moore, predicting both
candidates will visit the Bluegrass state and fill the airwaves
with commercials.
