Hillary Clinton ended Barack Obama's winning streak,
but he is still ahead in the crucial delegate count [AFP]
On March 5, four more states went to the polls to choose their candidate for the next American president - Ohio, Texas, Vermont and Rhode Island.

And just like last month's "Super Tuesday," yesterday's "Mini Tuesday" has left us hanging.

Hillary Clinton won the states of Ohio, Texas and Rhode Island, ending Senator Barack Obama's winning streak.

The victories breathed new life into her campaign, and keep her running, after many thought her bid was over.

Barack Obama brushed off the results and made the point that he still leads Clinton in the crucial delegate count.

And where the fight continues in the Democratic Party, things have cleared up for the Republicans.

And just a little while ago, George Bush, US president, endorsed McCain as the right candidate for the party.

So what is to be expected, as this election's roller-coaster ride continues?
