Obama Embarrassed in Kentucky, Arkansas

President Obama barely eked out Democratic primary wins in Kentucky and Arkansas, Politico reports.

The president didn't even have an opponent in Kentucky, but took just 57.9% of the vote, with the remaining more than 42 percent of ballots cast for "uncommitted."

In Arkansas, his unknown opponent, John Wolfe (D), won 41% of the vote.

Washington Post: "Although the results haven't stopped Obama's march to renomination -- he officially clinched the Democratic nod on April 3 -- they remain an indicator of not-insignificant pockets of unrest within his party."
