LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) _ It's looking like a landslide, but one that won't be moving any mountains.

Hillary Rodham Clinton has won the Kentucky primary, easily outdistancing Barack Obama. But the New York Democrat's West
Virginia-like victory is of scant political value as Barack Obama moves toward a delegate milestone. She says she will continue to go ``toe to toe'' against Obama.

But Obama is expected to finish Tuesday night with a majority of all
delegates at stake in the 56 primaries and caucuses on the campaign
calendar.

Obama won the Democratic presidential primary in Oregon. The Illinois senator didn't wait for that news before proclaiming the nomination is
``within reach.'' Fewer than 100 delegates stand between Obama and
taking the nomination.

The Kentucky primary underscored Clinton's strong support among
white voters. Almost nine in 10 ballots were cast by whites there.
She defeated her rival among voters of all age groups and incomes,
the college educated and non-college educated, self-described
liberals, moderates and conservatives.

Though Clinton has had a strong run through the late primaries, Obama has steadily outpaced her in the race for national convention
delegates.
