Sexism vs Racism in Pennsylvania Primary Voting

My wife has long held that her interest in the 2008 Democratic Primary is based on learning whether America can better tolerate a woman, or a black man. In racist Pennsylvania, the result was a foregone conclusion - racism was going to trump sexism for Pennsylvania voters. And the results confirmed the predictions:

Clinton: 55%

Obama: 45%

The New York Times noted this as well.
