Obama Shifts Campaign Focus to General Election

(Associated Press)

EUGENE, Ore. -- After sharpening his attacks on Republican Sen. John McCain, Sen. Barack Obama is ready to lay a symbolic claim to the Democratic presidential nomination following the next round of primaries.

Tuesday's primaries in Oregon and Kentucky should leave Sen. Obama less than 100 delegates away from reaching the total 2,026 needed to secure his party's nomination after an epic battle with Sen. Hillary Clinton.

After picking up delegates in Nevada, Kansas and Maryland this weekend, Sen. Obama's delegate total is 1,907, compared with Clinton's 1,718.
