Latest Commentary: Volume VII, Number 30
Obama Wins Wyoming Caucuses -- Wyoming held its presidential nominating caucuses on Saturday, and in a very Republican state, Democrats were lined up early to vote. As most predicted, Senator Barrack Obama won the state with 61% of the vote. Wyoming is the smallest state in population, so it only had 12 delegates to elect. Senator Obama got at least 7 of them, and as Wyoming Democrats go through their state convention, he may pick up one or two more. The clock continues to tick away for the Clinton campaign.

Spain’s Socialists Win Re-Election -- In yesterday’s general election, Spain’s Socialist Party increased its representation in the Cortes winning 169 seats in the lower house. That’s five better than last time, but it leaves the party six seats shy of an absolute majority. Meanwhile, the conservative Popular Party now has to face the fact that it lost an election on the merits of the campaign and not over a bombing in Madrid like in 2004.

Branson Starting Online Air Charter Service -- Sir Richard Branson, Britain’s lively entrepreneur, has decided to get into the charter airline business. He’s starting an online service that allows owners and travelers to find one another. The idea isn’t all that original, but it is a growing niche in the travel world, and Sir Richard just might have another winner on his hands.

Barnsley Knocks Chelsea out of FA Cup -- At the end of “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,” the title characters are in a shoot out for their lives with gunmen whose identities are unclear. “Who are these guys?” Butch and Sundance keep asking. The same could be said of Chelsea FC on Saturday as lowly Barnsley FC knocked them out of the FA Cup with a score of 1-0.
