Yahoo board to spurn $44B Microsoft bid - La. voters capture nation's attention - Clinton, Obama battle vote-for-vote in White House race - Dozens arrested in mob raids - Bush pushes Senate to OK 180 nominees.



Yahoo board to spurn $44B Microsoft bid
Yahoo Inc.'s board has concluded Microsoft Corp.'s $44.6 billion takeover bid undervalues the slumping Internet pioneer and plans to reject the unsolicited offer, a person familiar with the situation said Saturday. The decision, first reported by The Wall Street Journal on its Web site, could trigger a showdown involving two of the world's most prominent technology companies.

La. voters capture nation's attention
For the first time in at least a decade, Louisianians will have the chance to vote in a presidential primary that could actually have an effect on the party nominations, especially among the Democrats. Louisiana Democrats will have their say today in a neck-and-neck battle for delegates between New York Sen. Hillary Clinton and Illinois Sen. Barack Obama, while the Republicans' contest features Arizona Sen. John McCain, who has all but locked up the GOP nomination, running against former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, Texas Congressman Ron Paul and a handful of others.

Clinton, Obama battle vote-for-vote in White House race
Democratic rivals Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama scrambled for every last vote Saturday with little hope that a fresh round of primaries would break the deadlock in their tight White House race. Four states were holding presidential primaries or caucuses for either the Democratic or Republican nomination in the first votes since the Super Tuesday contests ended in a stalemate for Clinton and Obama.

Dozens arrested in mob raids
Mobster John Gotti's funeral procession passes the Bergin Hunt and Fish Club in Queens, New York in 2002 on the way to the cemetary. A huge roundup of suspected mobsters in New York and Sicily may have hurt the Mafia, but with organized crime continually adapting and able to tap into a deep well of willing recruits, the sweep is unlikely to deal a fatal blow to the Cosa Nostra, experts say.

Bush pushes Senate to OK 180 nominees
President Bush vented frustration anew Saturday over the Senate's failure to vote on more than 180 of his nominations, including more than two dozen to the federal bench.
"Some have been waiting for more than a year," said Bush, who invited many of the nominees to the White House for an event on Thursday. "As a result, careers have been put on hold, families have been placed in limbo and our government has been deprived of the service of these fine nominees."
