Mississippi Casts a Vote for President Tuesday 

Tuesday is the Magnolia state's day to rise and shine, as Mississippi Democrats go to the polls and choose between presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. The Illinois senator, who is heavily favored because of the preponderance of African-American voters among the voters, would regain his momentum on the treadmill with a victory. But the never-say-die Clintons showed up in force over the last few days -- Bill and Hillary and Chelsea, too. So who knows?

Watch this space. We'll keep you informed as to how the 40 or so delegates break.
