(Newser) – This is what the 2008 presidential election has come to: even the least populous state in the Union gets to be the center of the political universe for its 15 minutes. Wyoming Democrats caucus today after being wooed as never before, the Los Angeles Times reports. And the Dems—all 59,130 of them—are thrilled with the up-close-and-personal treatment by Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

The candidates each made two visits yesterday to vie for the 12 delegates up for grabs. Bill and Chelsea Clinton have stumped here. "It's just so exciting to have this presidential race shape up such that our votes really do matter," said the state's Democratic Party spokesman, whose phone has been ringing nonstop since Little Super Tuesday failed to deliver a decisive lead to either candidate.
