Making News Nineteen People Indicted in Massive Mortgage Fraud Case 5 MIN, 9 SEC
From New York to California, FBI and IRS agents had the sad task of telling victims of mortgage fraud they’d lost their homes—to people who claimed they were protecting them from foreclosure. In Sacramento, federal prosecutors said 19 people have been indicted in a case of what the US Attorney calls “unmitigated greed.”

Main Topic Obama Was on the Ropes, Now Clinton Urged to Get Out of the Ring 19 MIN, 30 SEC

Last week, it appeared that Reverend Wright had put the kibosh on Barack Obama. Then came the speech about race and Bill Richardson's endorsement.  Now pundits are asking when Hillary Clinton will hang up her running shoes. With ten states still to hold presidential primaries, what if Clinton goes on a winning streak? Are the primaries really the best measure of who will win in November? Are swings in conventional wisdom about political campaigns determined by competition for hits on political websites?
