(CNN) - Wyoming – the home state of Vice President Dick Cheney – is not usually a pit stop on the Democratic presidential campaign trail. But late this week, the state finds itself the Democratic destination of choice, with visits from former President Bill Clinton and the two remaining White House hopefuls, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.
The former president, campaigning for his wife, is making several stops in the state Thursday. And Hillary Clinton and Obama head to the state Friday – with both planning a stop in Casper (population: roughly 50,000).
“Seriously, I never imagined when I took this job that we would see the day when the two front-runners for the Democratic presidential nomination would hold events in Wyoming on the eve of our county caucuses,” Wyoming Democratic Party spokesman Bill Luckett wrote on the state party’s Web site Thursday. “I think there’s a reasonable chance we’ll get our 15 minutes in the national spotlight when the deal goes down on Saturday.”
With just over 600 delegates left at stake in the Democratic presidential race, every remaining contest is seen as crucial to both Clinton and Obama. No polling has been conducted in the state, though the Illinois senator has held the advantage in most caucus contests to date.

I am more concerned that If charges of fraud and extortion against Tony Rezko stick to Barack Obama will he be done overnight?
Bill Clinton isn't running, why isn't Hillary personally going there?
Oh, that's right. Small states that have caucuses don't count, silly me!
Hey CNN – You have a post that reads which title is "Clinton leads Obama in Texas caucuses count" –
BUT THE ARTICLE SAYS TO OPPOSITE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Bill wanted the constitution changed to allow a third term. He sure is working hard to get Hillary and himself back into the White House. Glad to see him on the trail. It reminds me why we need change.
Just last week, political pundits on CNN and other medial outlets were counting Clinton out. It's amazing to see how the tone has changed this week.
Why is Bill going instead of Hillary? If the delegates in a state are that important, then the actual candidate should go. Of course, some would argue that Bill is an actual candidate. Sort of the power behind the thrown.
Because we in the West love how Sen. Clinton is ignoring us and discounting us. Now she can't even campaign HERSELF in Wyoming. With how much Obama has BUILT a support structure in the West, he actually may put Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana into play this election year. He's already visited Idaho more than G.W. Bush did on the campaign trail.
Keep up the fight. :)
That must be an old picture of Bill. If it was a recent one, he'd be wearing a muzzle.
McCain '08 – Change You Can Live With
no more bush's or clinton's in the white house. there are 300,000,000 people in our democracy. we can do better.
Great news for Obama supporters! Good luck seems to follow us wherever Bill goes.
We can only hope for the delegates to support the best candidate for the general election. Obama can not beat McCain in the general and anyone who believes he can, is a dreamer. Obama followers are dreamers and will awaken to a real nightmare with McCain in the drivers seat.
I've been to Laramie a few times, Bill. Say "Hi" to the crew at The Buckhorn for me!
Go William Go. You're the right Stable. But she's the Entry!
Give her ground when it's required... This is Hillary's Race, in Wyoming.
Same go's for Mississippi....................
Wyoming is an excellent place to hide Bill. BTW, Bill, when you're in Laramie, say "hi" to the crew at The Buckhorn for me!
It sure must be nice having former president Bill Clinton Campaign on behalf of Hillary Clinton while Hillary Clinton goes off to campaign elsewhere.
Voters are probably trying to hope for a Bill Clinton third term strategy.
It's always good for Obama when Bill tries to help Hillary Huckabee (the candidate that just doesn't know when to stop)...
This guy works so hard. Hillary 08!
I usually like Mr. Clinton as far as getting a job done. I guess he has
to now see the little people, because his wife does not seem to be
able to handle the whole gammit of states. Will this be his call if she
LET'S GO PEOPLE OF WYOMING!!!!!!
Good, maybe he'll make some disparaging comment about ranchers and Obama can pick up another 2-3 delegates out of it.
Keep voting for real hope and change, America... not more lies, spin and political dynasties!
This man will harm your daugthers (no matter how old they are)...he can't keep his stick in his pants.
Go Bill! Deliver Wyoming for the home team!
ATA BOY BILL..GET HER DONE!!!!
In one of your headings "Clinton leads Obama in Texas caucuses count" is pretty misleading, Obama is the one leading but your heading appears to mean that Clinton is the one leading in the Texas caucuses.
