Sen. Hillary Clinton was the sole guest on ABC's This Week, and Sen. Barack Obama was the only guest on NBC's Meet the Press. In contrast, Sen. John McCain spent Sunday at the ballpark, watching his Arizona Diamondbacks get beat by the New York Mets. Host Steve Inskeep checks in with NPR News Analyst Cokie Roberts on the Democratic race for president.

On his way into the primaries in Indiana and North Carolina, Obama said, "We've had a rough couple of weeks." This week, we find out how much Democratic primary voters care. Obama's patriotism has been questioned, and so has his former pastor, whose remarks Obama disowned.

Clinton also came in for fierce criticism for the tone of her campaign, among other things, and lost the support of some key Democrats.
