FROM THIS EPISODE

Hillary Clinton beat Barack Obama by 41 points in West Virginia, but he still looks like he's cruising.  And the Democrats took a congressional seat from the Republicans in Mississippi-despite help from US Senators and Vice President Cheney. Can Clinton go on with a debt of $20 million? Will Obama be a weak candidate against John McCain?  What about McCain's problems with his own party?  Also, President Bush is back in Israel, and Chinese troops are trying to repair cracks in dams that could make the earthquake disaster much worse.

Main Topic Hillary Clinton Wins the Battle but Is Still Losing the War 35 MIN, 4 SEC

Barack Obama was clobbered by Hillary Clinton in West Virginia, but he's still the presumptive Democratic nominee. She vows to continue campaigning despite a debt of $20 million, almost $12 million of which is her own money. Has Clinton proved that Obama will be a weak candidate against John McCain?  How important are low-income white voters? Will McCain have to run, in part, against his own party's unpopular incumbent, as the Republicans lose a Congressional seat in Mississippi?
