There’s a place not too far away from here\ Out with the cows and the Lone Star beer\ Where the livin’ and lovin’ is quite all right with me\ Well they call it Texas and it’s a mighty fine place to be\ \ Runs from Texarkana to El Paso\ And Oklahoma down to old Mexico\ And there’s Houston, Dallas, Austin and San Antone\ People in Texas sure do make you feel at home\ \ They just want everybody to leave them alone\ While they drink their whiskey and roll their own\ And they like their music with a little bit of southern sound\ They kick up their heels every evening when the sun goes down\ \ And you can call them country and they don’t care\ And if you don’t like the way they wear their hair\ You can take your likes and shove ‘em on up the line\ People in Texas don’t care if the sun don’t shine

CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Sen. Barack Obama cruised through the Lone Star state yesterday, bolstered by superdelegates who are leaning his way, his rival’s vanishing poll lead and large numbers of Hispanics — his opponent’s best hope — attending his events.\ \ The Illinois Democrat leads national polls, has a slim lead or is tied in polls of Texans and is closing the gap with Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton in Ohio. Yesterday he acted like a front-runner by ducking questions from reporters and instead addressing big crowds in hopes of winning the state’s March 4 vote.\ \ Mr. Obama always gets big cheers when saying President Bush’s name won’t be on the ballot in November, but they were deafening here yesterday, so he added: “We’re sending him back to Texas.”\ \ Mrs. Clinton began her day attacking Mr. Obama’s record but had to suspend a full campaign schedule when she learned that a Dallas police officer had been killed in a motorcycle accident while riding in her motorcade. Calling herself “heartsick,” she appeared in Fort Worth only to thank people for being there. Mr. Obama opened his rally here by asking supporters to observe a moment of silence.
