Former VP candidate Geraldine Ferraro, angry and out of the Clinton campaign after tagging Obama with the race card. And an Obama win in Mississippi, with race all over it.

We've got record oil prices, again. Stocks wildly up and down. More economic shudders, Centcom's chief out, and a spike in deaths in Iraq.
