Slipping in New Hampshire
On the eve of the New Hampshire primary, a new CNN/WMUR poll finds Barack Obama pulling away from fellow U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton. A disturbing trend to the Clinton campaign, especially in the wake of Obama coming in first in the Iowa caucuses.
Fire marshals have been turning people away at the doors of Obama rallies across New Hampshire because the venues have reached legal capacity. Not so at the Clinton gatherings.
Obama has been speaking in broad strokes about his vision for America. Clinton has been speaking in specifics about the votes she has taken, the causes she has championed. But Obama is achieving rock star like status, clearly overshadowing Clinton in New Hampshire.
Clinton has been shifting her message a bit, sharpening her attack on Obama's inexperience. But his freshness, at this point in the campaign, seems to be overshadowing that argument.
