Clinton's Campaign Shows Signs of New Life

Hillary Clinton's campaign is showing signs of new life on Feb. 28 as she got a big boost from donors.

She's fighting to stay alive in the March 4 primaries, where experts say she badly needs to break her losing streak.

Asked whether Barack Obama's statements that he would withdraw forces from Iraq and reserve the right to send them back in--were naive, President Bush answered with a non-answer.

"I believe Senator Obama better stay focused on his campaign with Senator Clinton, neither of whom has secured their party's nomination yet," said Bush.

To that end, Obama--on the stump in Austin, Texas said the current state of the U.S. economy has not been caused by forces beyond the country's control.

"I've seen these anxieties on the face of workers in Youngstown, who are wondering if their job or plant will be the next to head overseas because of unfair trade agreements," said Obama.

Obama was referring to NAFTA, the North American Free Trade Agreement, which John McCain, in Houston Feb. 28, came out in support of.

"I'm a free trader. I believe that NAFTA has created jobs, and I think it's been good for our economy, I think it's been good for the Canadian economy, and I think it's been good for the Mexican economy," said McCain.

Meanwhile, Hillary Clinton's weak January fundraising has bounced back in a major way.

She's expected to raise $35-million in February.

Some of that money is going to new TV and radio ads in Ohio. In one spot, Governor Ted Strickland calls Clinton a fighter who knows how to deliver.

Early voting is already underway.

More than a-half million people in the 15 largest Texas counties have already voted.

Ohio officials report early voting has been heavy there, as well.

    Absolutely ... Sen Clinton always had life in her campaign and will continue to have it.... I think Pres. Bush's comments about that are telling... since he is the Republican Obama.....if we elect Obama in about 2016 we will be profoundly sorry!
