McCain gets big name endorsement; candidates campaign in Wisconsin

(NBC News Channel) - He is the only living former Republican President.  Today, George Herbert Walker Bush endorses John McCain in the race for the White House.

Are core GOP conservatives warming to the Senator from Arizona?
 
"I hope so because Former President Bush is one of the more respect- most respected people in our party," said Republican Presidential Candidate Senator John McCain.

If the move adds to pressure on Mike Huckabee to bow out, he didn't show it Sunday, rallying over pizza and bowling in Milwaukee.

All the candidates were in Wisconsin this weekend.

Bad weather forced Democrats to cancel some events, and improvise others.

Hillary Clinton stopped in at a diner a day after she and Barack Obama appeared back-to-back at a party dinner.

Clinton took her criticism of Barack Obama further

"It's not about the speeches for me, or the bright lights and cameras...it's about the changes we can make that actually deliver results in people's lives," she said.

Obama was ready for it.
 
"Don't tell me words don't matter. ‘I have a dream,’ just words? ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident,’ just words?" Obama said.

Obama has spent twice the time in Wisconsin as Clinton in the past week. 

92 delegates are at stake, eclipsing the contest in Hawaii.

This past weekend, Obama made the trip to North Carolina to meet with John Edwards, but there is still no sign whether Edwards will make any endorsement.

Today, Clinton taps into Edwards' populist message. 

She releases a 13 page blueprint on the economy, with details about fixing the foreclosure crisis and achieving universal health care.
