Chasing Hillary Clinton

What do John Edwards and Barack Obama have to do to catch Hillary Clinton in the polls? Candy Crowley has the story.

(CNN) - A CNN/WMUR poll released Tuesday shows Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-New York, with more than a twenty point lead over Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois, and former Sen. John Edwards, D-North Carolina, remaining in third place in New Hampshire, a crucial early primary state in the 2008 presidential race.   Candy Crowley takes a look at the dynamics of the contest between the three frontrunners for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination.

    Are polls important? No. Who did the poll say would win the democratic primary? - Dean. Who won? – Kerry.

    Predicted comments:

    "why did CNN erase my last post" (when it's usually there)

    "CNN=Clinton News Network (and other paranoid rants)

    "It's Bill Clinton's Fault" (this doesn't make sense, but then again, does it ever?)

    "RON PAUL...blah, blah, blah..."

    "Democrats hate America and want terrorists to win, blah, blah, stupid idiot being displayed, blah..."

    "Republicans are nazis, blah, blah, more stupidity, blah"

    -Biden's plan splitting up Iraq overwhelmingly passes Senate...

    Among Biden's Democratic White House rivals in the Senate, Hillary Clinton and Chris Dodd voted for the measure while Barack Obama skipped the vote.

    He either votes the same as Hill are doesnt vote. Why becuase he dont want to take a stand. If you make a stand mite upset some voters.So he plays it safe and leave us guessing his stance on issues.

    hmm Probably why Hill has a two digits lead ahead of him at least she votes on the hot topics and let us know where she stands.

    Democrat voters has realised that Obama cannot CHANGE without EXPERIENCE. Change without experience only goes from flying pan into the fire, i.e., into a bigger mess than
    what George Bush has done to america.

    Experience provides good judgement, and that Hillary has pretty of.

    Go Hillary go.

    there's no doubt hillary rotten will get the nomination. barack may be a nice guy, but he's soft on terror and too inexperienced (I mean he's a junior senator for pete's sake). but there are many anti-hillary, anti-clinton people who will come out to vote "against" hillary rotten. face it, the dems have a problem

    Maybe the liberals in NH gave their TVs to less fortunate people and didn't see the debate – she doesn't answer questions...nor take any stance on anything (except blaming Republicans for the very war she voted for...with the very same intelligence they had) – again...I wonder about the left wing bloggers you watch the debates? If someone asks you if its sunny outside...and you answer "I like coffee" – is any answer acceptable to you?? (I personally like when people answer the questions I ask)
