WASHINGTON (CNN) - It's now less than a week until the Iowa caucuses on January 3 and the presidential race has turned to issues of foreign policy and experience in the wake of former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto's assassination.
In the latest Best Political Podcast, Sens. Hillary Clinton, D-New York, and Barack Obama, D-Illinois, spar over how their campaigns reacted to news of Bhutto's death. Wolf Blitzer speaks with Clinton and Jessica Yellin speaks with Obama.
Dana Bash is out on the trail with former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee as the GOP White House hopeful tries to seal the deal with voters in Iowa. But, Huckabee's response to the crisis in Pakistan has called the GOP front-runner's foreign policy credentials into question. Bash reports on a surprising admission by the Huckabee campaign.
Former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney is also using the situation in Pakistan to question Sen. John McCain's readiness to be president. Mary Snow reports from Iowa on the recent back-and-forth between the two GOP candidates.
Speaking of Iowa, voters in the Hawkeye State are being inundated with political ads. Suzanne Malveaux reports about how approximately one-third of television air time in Iowa has been dedicated to political ads as the caucuses approach.
