Hillary Hoping To Make Stand Against Obama

February 19, 2008

Wisconsin is where Hillary Clinton needs to stop Barack Obama in his tracks.

In their photo-finish race for the nomination both Democrats are desperate for Wisconsin's 74 delegates and bragging rights.

Always looking ahead the candidates are now focused on even bigger targets, delegate rich Ohio and Texas. Clinton is splitting her time between the two states, Obama is settling into Texas, rallying in San Antonio and Houston.

The primary in Texas isn't until March 4th, but early voting has already started and nearly half of voters here are expected to cast ballots while the candidates criss cross their state.

John McCain was in Wisconsin as voters headed to the polls, moving closer to a lock on the nomination. His wife Cindy briefly took center stage, with what sounded like a swipe at Michelle Obama.

In Wisconsin over the weekend, Obama caused a stir when she said, for the first time in her adult life, she's proud of her country.

"I'm proud of my country. I don't know about you if you heard those words earlier. I'm very proud of my country," said Cindy McCain.

A country that's going to hear a lot more bickering as the race for the White House heads down to the wire.
