Kerry Adds Two More Wins; Clark to Drop Out

Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry claims victory in the Virginia and Tennessee primaries, saying the wins demonstrate his electability in any U.S. region. Kerry handily defeats Southern rivals Sen. John Edwards and retired general Wesley Clark. Clark, who placed third in both contests, is expected to drop out of the race Wednesday. Hear NPR's Mara Liasson.
