Wednesday, February 13 in the news.....

  • Barack Obama, already claiming a "new American majority," is focusing more and more on the likely Republican candidate in the November presidential election as he continues to rack up big victories over Hillary Rodham Clinton in their race for the Democratic nomination. Bill Clinton - already criticised for injecting race-based arguments into the campaign trail - said this is like the 1988 Grammy's and just because more people bought Michael Jackson's Bad didn't mean much because the Grammy still went to Bono and U2 for Joshua Tree.

  • German astronaut Hans Schlegel said he's feeling great and well enough to make a spacewalk Wednesday, after sitting out the mission's first outing because of illness. The astronauts knew their German counterpart was sick when he begun laughing at their jokes.
