Sen. Hillary Clinton makes a campaign stop in Kinston, North Carolina, on Friday

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."

    Who cares about Elizabeth Taylor? She is a perfect fit with Clinton's demographic. Is she a superdelagate? No. Why aren't you reporting on Paul Kirk's decision to back Obama? He is former DNC Chair and a superdelegate- a little more important than Liz Taylor, don't you think?

    May 2, 2008 06:54 pm at 6:54 pm |

    She is going to lose no matter what you Clinton worshipers say or think, she is to far behind, and man does she have a big behind, watch out!

    I'd like to see Hillary win in NC if only to torment the vote suppressing,

    democracy intolerant, DNC leadership. Party leadership and DEM

    government officials have exhibited "EXTREME ANTIPATHY"

    and "ELITISM" towards their own civilian members in this primary

    election season.

    Keep going Hilliary – our country needs you! NC and IN, get out there and vote. This country does not need a president who takes 20 plus years to figure out what his mentor is saying.

    The longer this race goes on, the stronger Hillary is!

    With the Kentucky Derby tomorrow, let me place an analogy... Obama is a sprinter, trying to go a distance. He starts strong, but has no stamina, and poops out in the end. Clinton is a closer, and starts out slow, splits the field, and finishes with a relish to WIN!

    As I keep reading the blogs, I am convinced that Obama supporters that blog are "professional bloggers", meaning they are getting paid by Obama. No matter what happens, they spin it to his advantage, and I find it hard to believe that anyone could delude themselves this way.

    Obama needs to step down, go back to the Senate and legislate more, and perhaps in 2016, may be better qualified to be POTUS.

    Nobama will win North Carolina because of black people and Clinton will win Indiana because of white people. To this point, voters have voted primarily along racial lines. The evidence shows that this is true.

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

    Seems Senator Obama and Rev. Wright's theatrics last week did not fool too many people.

    Surprised we haven't heard Clinton or one of her cronies blame Obama for Barbara Walters affair yet. (The affair was with a black man- so naturally it's his fault it happened.)

    Of course it is getting close in NC. The peoplle are finally seeing that the ordination of Obama is a mistake for our party. Look for the Obama campaign to really throw away all of this new politics stuff if he loses both of these will get as dirty as they come. Hillary is the only real choice.

    Both Clinton and Obama have said they will support whichever one of them is the eventual candidate and we are being asked to support the democratic standard bearer. I want to know why Mrs. Obama has twice responded that she doesn't know whether she would support Mrs. Clinton should she be the nominee. She expects Clinton supporters to vote for her husband in November, but we have no indication if she will do the same if Clinton is the candidate. Seems to be a double standard and not in the interest of unifying the party.
