Obama, Clinton Court American Indian Vote

June 2, 2008, 2:47 PM

Obama, Clinton Court American Indian Vote
Democratic presidential hopefuls Hillary Rodham Clinton and Barack Obama are courting the American Indian vote as they seek their party's nomination for the White House.

In a tight Democratic race, American Indians living in poor conditions on isolated prairie reservations could have a pivotal voice in the selection of a presidential candidate.

As a result, they're hearing a lot of promises from politicians: better health care, improved housing and stepped-up law enforcement in Indian country. 

Indian communities appear split between the two Democrats. 

Clinton, Obama and presumptive Republican nominee John McCain have all promised to create a new White House position to oversee Indian affairs. 

Jacqueline Johnson is executive director of the National Congress of American Indians. She called it a "phenomenal year" because all three candidates actually know something about Indian country.
