SNEAK PEEK: Monster's Ball

Wyoming Democratic Caucuses
Earliest Caucus Meeting Begins: 11:00 am ET
Last Caucuses Begin: 6:00 pm ET
12 Delegates At Stake, proportional

Dick Cheney's home state of Wyoming plays host Saturday to the first Democratic contest since Hillary Clinton resurrected her political fortunes.

Following primary losses in Ohio, Texas, and Rhode Island, Obama is looking to his distant cousin's backyard to keep up his impressive record of winning caucuses.

Clinton is portraying herself as an underdog.

"I know it's an uphill climb," said Clinton on Friday while campaigning in Casper, Wy., "I'm aware of that."

"But, you see," she added, "I am a fighter, and I believe it's worth fighting for your votes."

For his part, Obama used his time in Wyoming on Friday to argue that Clinton is not in any position to criticize him on the Iraq war. "She doesn't have the standing to question my position on this issue," said Obama, referring to Clinton seizing on a Thursday interview that one of Obama's foreign policy advisers gave to the BBC.

Samantha Power, who resigned on Friday after calling Clinton "a monster," said that the Illinois Democrat's plan to withdraw all combat troops from Iraq in 16 months is "a best case scenario" and not necessarily the path that he will follow.

How much have the campaigns invested in Wyoming?

Both sides have had staffers on the ground since February; Obama's team arrived two weeks earlier than Clinton's.

As for the air war, Obama has been up on both television and radio while Clinton's ads have been limited to radio.

On the endorsement front, popular Democratic Governor Dave Freudenthal has remained neutral in the race. The state Democratic Party chair endorsed Obama months ago. Clinton has the support of former two-term Gov. Mike Sullivan, who was appointed U.S. ambassador to Ireland by Bill Clinton.

The state party predicts a turnout of about 7,000 voters. The Obama and Clinton campaigns have told the party to be prepared for a turnout of 11,000.

There are 59,000 registered Democrats in this solidly Red State which last voted Democratic for president in 1964.

Special Election in IL-14:

Illinois' 14th congressional district is holding a special election on Saturday to fill the seat vacated late last year by former House Speaker Dennis Hastert.

Democrat Bill Foster is facing off against Republican Jim Oberweis.

Obama cut a 30-second spot for Foster and stands to pick up a superdelegate if Foster prevails in this Republican-leaning district.
