Dems Gear Up For Pennsylvania Primary

April 21, 2008

Hillary Clinton has one more day to solidify her lead in Pennsylvania.

"We need bear down now that the last day is here and the world is
watching," said Clinton.

Clinton needs to win the Pennsylvania primary convincingly to narrow Barack
Obama 's lead. She's ahead in the polls, but in recent weeks her edge has
dwindled, once at 21 points, she is now ahead by single digits.

And while Obama is campaigning to win Tuesday, pundits say all he really
needs to do is keep it close. And he's been criss-crossing the state trying
to do just that.

"I will do the same thing in the White House that I've been doing for 20 years and that's thinking about you," said Obama.

Delegates are at stake in Pennsylvania, the biggest prize left in the
race for the nomination, and the chance to land at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Both candidates have been flooding the airwaves with commercials many of
them negative.

But some voters say it is time for the party to unite.

"i think we are headed for a really nasty convention and I think they have to
start thinking about the betterment of the party and betterment of the
country," said a voter.

The Democratic winner will take on John McCain. The GOP candidate is in
Selma, Alabama Monday as he launches a week-long tour of communities he says are suffering from poverty and inattention from presidential candidates.
