Sen. Barack Obama

RALEIGH, N.C. - Sen. Barack Obama will win the Indiana and North Carolina primaries tomorrow, a top supporter and former Hillary Rodham Clinton backer declared yesterday, prompting the former first lady’s campaign to crow that if he doesn’t, she deserves to be the nominee.\ \ Former Democratic National Committee Chairman Joe Andrew of Indiana, who switched his support in the Democratic presidential race from Mrs. Clinton to Mr. Obama last week, said on “Fox News Sunday” that his candidate faces “tough races,” but will win.\ \ “You’re going to see him coming back,” Mr. Andrew said. “I think he’s going to win both because of this energy, this excitement, and because of the fact that people realize that he’s got some real plans here, not just political pandering.”\ \ Clinton aides seized on the remark within minutes and sent reporters a YouTube clip. They also revived talk of a months-old Obama campaign spreadsheet that had predicted he would win Indiana by seven points.\ \ Obama spokesman Bill Burton said the spreadsheet, which the campaign inadvertently sent to reporters, “was one of an infinite number of possibilities.”
