Is the Huffington Post Biased?

Is it just me or does the Huffington Post seem awfully skewed lately towards Obama? One quick look through their politics page mentions 2 Clinton and 1 Edwards new pieces. At the same time there are 9 headlines concerning Obama, mostly effusing with praise. For instance...look at the main page of the Huffington Post and the politics page of the Post and you see these two headlines.
Teddy Echoes JFK: "The World Is Changing...The Old Ways Will Not Do"
The rest of the Politics Page has this to say:
Read Obama Camp Memo On State Of The Race
Sharpton On Bill Clinton: "It's Time For Him To Just Be Quiet"
Obama Takes Big Risk On Driver's Licenses For Illegals
Obama Takes Lead In Hispanic-Heavy Colorado
Kurtz: Media's Got A (Huge) Crush On Obama
Off The Bus >> Obama Campaign Pursues California Delegates
Obama's Stump Lines Echo Malcolm X
Highest-Ranking Latino In US House Endorses Obama
Memo to the Huffington Post:
...there are still 3 candidates in the race. I know you've been enamoured with Obama for some time, but your Politics page used to be saved for the most momentous items in politics that day. Your main page used to feature the biggest news story of the day. Obama endorsements and a Senator calling Obama `Kennedyesque', isn't the biggest news. In fact, it's barely news considering all that's going on out there. Where is one mention of the FISA fight? And if you don't want to feature news, where are the articles for the other candidates? Oh Huffington Post, you used to be such a great site......and then you blew it on your love for Obama.
