A new Quinnipiac poll in Ohio shows Sen. Hillary Clinton leading Sen. Barack Obama, 55% to 34%, among likely voters. In Pennsylvania, Clinton is ahead of Obama, 52% to 36%. Said pollster Peter Brown:
"Despite her losing streak, Sen. Clinton remains far ahead of Sen. Obama among likely Democratic primary voters in Ohio and Pennsylvania. But in some of the earlier contests Obama has closed similar gaps and gone on to win. With Ohio the next big state, along with Texas, voting on March 4, Clinton must fend off another last-minute Obama surge in the Buckeye State."
The New York Post says House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D) is considering endorsing Sen. Barack Obama. According to aides, "she's weighing whether a public endorsement would harm her ability to function in her job."
In other news, Senator Edwards is mulling an endorsement of Senator Clinton, surprisingly. But this is not stopping Obama from courting him. The Presidential race sure won't solve our problems, there are just so many right now. We must pick a leader, however who can begin to peck away at these issues. This is only the beginning, once we have a nominee then the real work begins.
