Obama comes out swingin - finally.
Obama is having a good week. Hillary? Not so much.
From The Huffington Post:
Clinton Plants Question
Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign came under fire over the weekend for planting fake questions at town hall events, as all the Democratic candidates gathered in Iowa for the state party's pivotal Jefferson- Jackson Day dinner.
The Clinton campaign arranged for a college student to ask a "canned" question at an event on Tuesday, which was first reported on Friday by Patrick Caldwell, a writer for Scarlet and Black, a student newspaper at Grinnell College. The student, Muriel Gallo-Chasanoff, said a senior Clinton staffer told her what question to ask after Clinton finished her remarks.
The latest UNH/Boston Globe poll of likely Democratic NH primary voters has been released and as teased on Friday, it shows a net drop in Clinton's lead over Obama of 9%. This follows on the heels of the Marist poll, which showed a 10% net drop since October and the Rasmussen poll, which showed a 6% net drop since October.
Starting Gate: Obama Wows 'Em In Iowa
The Barack Obama boomlet has apparently begun. The Illinois senator is getting rave reviews for his speech at the Iowa Democratic Party's Jefferson-Jackson dinner Saturday night. (more...)
So...every time I hear someone say that Hillary is going to be the candidate, I remind them that there is still some time left and you never know what's gonna happen.
Obama's latest speeches, and his Meet the Press interview were great. I hope he keeps this up.
He just may pull this thing out.
