Democrats Fight Fiercely As McCain Focuses On Obama

February 14, 2008

Senator Hillary Clinton knows she needs to win Texas and Ohio to rescue her run for the White House. After losing eight straight primary contests, Mrs. Clinton is on the offense, portraying Barack Obama as a smooth talker, short on details.

Now trailing in the delegate count, the former first lady is bringing out
her best weapons, to court voters on multiple fronts. She is campaigning in Ohio. Her husband is in Wisconsin, and her daughter, Chelsea is off to Hawaii.

Obama is looking to next Tuesday when voters in Washington State, his
native Hawaii, and Wisconsin vote. Campaigning now in the heartland, he's keeping the focus on the economy.

"People are struggling right now. People are having a tough time," said Obama.

On the Republican side, John McCain is the clear frontrunner. As he campaigns through New England, he's looking ahead to his battle with the democrats and he's targeting Barack Obama.

The Arizona senator is stumping in Vermont and Rhode Island.

His Republican challenger, Mike Huckabee, is taking a little time off the
campaign trail to give a paid speech in the Cayman Islands. The former
Arkansas governor says he has to make a living. Adding that, like many other Americans, he has a mortgage to pay.
