Fat Tuesday Meets Super Tuesday in NOLA
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning, I'm Renee Montagne. Louisiana doesn't hold its primary until Saturday. The candidates Clinton and Obama were seen on the campaign trail yesterday, that being St. Charles Avenue in New Orleans, where Fat Tuesday came together with Super Tuesday. One couple dressed up as the political duo for Mardi Gras, joining men in sequins and feathers, brass bands and floats. Another reveler flashed the sign Monica Lewinsky's Ex-Boyfriend's Wife for President. That was a campaign sign.
