Obama hints at Democratic race ending soon

DAYTON, Ohio (CNN) - In what could be described as a fairly typical rally for Democrat Barack Obama Monday, the Illinois senator seemed to imply that the fierce battle between him and rival Hillary Clinton will all be over soon - exactly how soon, he didn't indicate.

The Democratic frontrunner made the subtle comments just as he started to delve into a portion of his stump where he lays out various arguments leveled at him from both "Sen. Clinton and others."

"I've got to say," Obama began, "in the waning days of this campaign a lot of people are saying 'no, no, no, don’t believe."

He then went on to give his rebuttal to the criticism that he doesn't have the necessary amount of experience in Washington.

    JT do you copy and paste that stupid entry for every article on here?? i just read that entry for another hilary/obama story. hilary supporters are using these forums as an excuse to simply bombard the internet with these ridiculous comments and accusations. since when did obama get less media scrutiny? first he was the guy that no one thought had a chance, came in as an underdog, and now he is fending verbal attacks from clinton and mccain. obama is the only candidate who is acting presidential. he will have my vote. and for everyone who says he has no "substance" and lacks policy plans – uhh hhave you been on his website??

    Really JT? Almost as delusional as the Hillary supporters giving money to a losing campaign. For a person with no experience he sure has Hillary on the ropes.

    Stop with rumors and stay on the facts. I know thats hard to do when desparation sets in. But listen JT it's not to late to come over to a winning team!

    OBAMA '08!!!!!!!

    Obama's campaign is comprised of geniuses...........whether you feel he is qualified or not he sure appears to be a knock out artist who is rolling with the punches.
