WASHINGTON (CNN) - Sens. Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama stumped for last-minute votes in Indiana and North Carolina Friday ahead of the states' Tuesday primaries.

New polls show Clinton narrowing Obama's lead in North Carolina, once seen as an easy win for Obama.

Polling in Indiana shows the two candidates running dead even.

"We are seeing terrific support all across Indiana and all across North Carolina ... I have no doubt these are going to be tight races. This campaign has been tight throughout," Obama said in Indianapolis, Indiana, Friday morning.

"But I am very confident the American people are looking for the kind of truth telling and serious policy making that is going to have an affect on heir lives, and as long as I'm talking about the issues."

    What Obama is really saying is; I count on the ignorant ,lazy,mean Americans to vote for me even though I'm a crook, liar, I have no resume, I cheated my way to this position by getting my competition names off the ballet by any means I knew. I cant release my 1997-1999 income tax, well, you know why, also I seem to have lost all my senate records or legal work I may have done for favors. He does NOT tell the trueth and he knows nothing about the issues!

    Obama needs to drop out now !!!

    Hillary will take Indiana by a good margin close to 10 points and Will also win NC narrowly,.This is kosher, it's easy to see because it's the economy stupid, and Hillary is on that theme while Obama's change means opening discussions and debates on race which is good for pastors but a presidents role is more about governing the country.

    Hopefully Obama will get in there with the black voters of Indianapolis that were complaining about feeling ignored a few days ago. He needs those votes.

    "Polling in Indiana shows the two candidates running dead even"

    Well, that's not what I see in realclearpolitics:

    Hillary 47.5
    Obama 41.3

    I know you CNN want Obama to be the nominee but at least be a little objective in your reportings. One thing is opinion, another thing is facts.

    Thank you

    I am beginning to Notice something here. Check how often CNN is showing Hillary Clinton's picture/video versus Obama's. CNN is showing more of Hillary than Obama.
    The other day, they have a clip that says Obama but each time you click on it, Hillary's picture pops up. Watch it, we are watcing you.

    Nice Hillary Clinton feature article... There is another, far superior candidate out there in case you haven't heard... he is future President Barack Obama.

  15. Older W/Woman for Obama

    Why is no one allowed to record Bill Clinton's stump speeches? I'm just wondering what old Slick Willey is up to left on his own like that. I know it isn't good whatever it is.

    Think about it Indiana and North Carolina voters...if Hillary gets the nomination they won't be able to control Bill at all.

    Lost cause. He won, she lost in every category – so stop crying. On to the general election in the fall.

    Why isn't any one reporting about the illegal and false robocalls being made in NC too stop people from voting? Is it because the group who is responsible has ties to the Clinton campaign? Come on CNN, do some real reporting about Americans being taken advantage of?

    Whether Gas Tax or Not? Wrong or WRIGHT. No matter who wins the Democratic Nomination. Lets make a pledge that anyone who is a Clinton or Obama supporter that we vote Democratic… We cant afford a Republican these next 4 years. And if any Democratic voter does go vote for McCain, think about your children and your children's children that has a chance of going into a War not for ideology but for Oil. I am a rookie voter but think about the future. I Pledge that if Hillary or Obama win the nomination then I will vote for either one. I ask you consider this, and CNN posts this.

    It takes a special kind of person to look them in the eye and outright lie to them.
