Bill Clinton Makes Case for Electing His Wife

Former President Bill Clinton highlighted his wife's support for reforming the national flood insurance program and criticized the Bush administration's handling of the Hurricane Katrina crisis on the Gulf Coast in 2005 during several stops in Mississippi Saturday.

He campaigned for Sen. Hillary Clinton at Meridian Community College, and also made speeches on the coast and in Ellisville.

Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are battling for the Democratic nomination for president. Obama leads in the delegate count, but neither has yet gathered enough to win.

There are 33 delegates at stake in Mississippi's primary on Tuesday; both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have campaigned in the state. Mississippi has a large black population, giving Obama the advantage.

Clinton said he had flown over the Arkansas airport where FEMA is storing thousands of unused trailers, but hadn't realized that thousands of Mississippi residents are still living in such trailers more than two years after the hurricane.
