Clinton pushes on to West Virginia; Obama takes a break

UNDATED (AP) -- Without a break after yesterday's two contests, Hillary Rodham Clinton is pushing full steam ahead to next week's primary in West Virginia. She's adjusted her schedule and will be campaigning in the state today, as will her daughter Chelsea. All three Clintons will be spending time in the state, which offers a total of 28 delegates. Bill Clinton launches a busy schedule tomorrow. Barack Obama beat the New York Democrat in North Carolina and fell just short in Indiana. He's taking the day off at his home in Chicago. Meanwhile, Clinton backers have been making TV appearances to underline that she's still in the race. They're also urging party leaders and elected officials known as superdelegates not to flee to Obama. Obama is now 184.5 delegates shy of the number needed to secure the Democratic nomination. His backers have been urging the 270 unaligned superdelegates to announce their support for him -- and end the race.
