Front Page: Roadside Bomb in Iraq, Mississippi, China Inflates

  • Reported moments ago, at least 16 people were killed when a nonmilitary bus was hit by a roadside bomb in southern Iraq. Twenty-two people were wounded in the bombing, which occurred on the Basra-Nasiriyah road just less than 300 miles south of Baghdad. This incident compounds with a violent day yesterday that saw eight US soldiers and an interpreter killed in two separate incidents in Diyala and Baghdad.
  • Voters in Mississippi head to the polls today, the latest state to weigh in on the increasingly tight Democratic race. Polls show Barack Obama with an advantage in the state, which has 33 delegates up for grabs. Obama spent yesterday campaigning in the state, while Hillary Clinton focused her energy on Pennsylvania. That state has 158 delegates at stake in just over a month. Polls close in Mississippi at 7 p.m. EDT. Check back here for results later today.
  • Consumer prices in China ballooned last month, the fastest pace of increase in more than 11 years, according to China’s National Bureau of Statistics. Food prices were the biggest contributor, up 23.3 percent from the same month last year. Though China's heavy winter storms are partially to blame, the government has been issuing large amounts of Chinese currency every week and banks have been lending aggressively, creating a surge in circulating money. Leading economists believe the rapid money supply growth is the driving force behind the huge inflation.

HRC knows Mississippi has little to no love for her after her nasty remarks in Iowa. She was smart by hightailing it out of there as soon as possible.

I'm not surprised that Hillary moved on to Pennsylvania after like only stop in Miss. She does this every time she thinks one state is more valuable than the other. Shows how important the people are to her, doesn't it? I think she will win Pennsylvania but it will mirror the Ohio win where she picked up only about 10 more delegates than Obama. Big whoop.
