"He's Not Really Black"

Muncie, Indiana florist Judy Benken says she'll be voting the way her family has voted for generations - white.

Benken told the Toronto Star that she'll support Barack Obama, claiming, "He's not really black – he doesn't have those pronounced features."

"Muncie, Ind., is divided by rail tracks. Its more upscale north, including Ball State University, is expected to back Obama; its gritty blue-collar south expected to support Clinton.

The south side is also the remnant of a once-proud industrial sector that barely exists these days, supplanted by the north side's university and service industry."
