Both Barack Obama and John McCain will be in the "Land of Enchantment" meeting with veterans on Memorial Day.

Obama's Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, will remain in Puerto Rico ahead of next week's primary there, when 30 Democratic convention delegates are at stake.

Obama is just 49 delegates away from clinching the nomination after picking up three more superdelegates Sunday in Hawaii. Filling in for Senator Ted Kennedy, Obama delivered the commencement adddress at Connecticut's Wesleyan University, urging grads to dedicate themselves to public service.

Also Sunday, the Libertarian Party picked former Republican congressman Bob Barr as its candidate for president.

Barr says he expects the party to be on the ballot in at least 48 states and perhaps all 50.
