not taking the bait…

CNN’s John King posed a question asking how Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton’s messages on the economy are different. Obama didn’t really take the bait, and has tried to show the differences between himself and the President, not himself and Senator Clinton. He’s a frontrunner right now, and doesn’t need to attack Senator Clinton – he got a dig in, but is basically bracing for what Clinton has to say.

King’s question to Clinton asked about her statement that she will be ready for the job “on day one” and how that would be different from Senator Obama. She pandered to the Texas crowd in her answer, but hardly even spoke about Senator Obama. I think she’s seen that “tough” Clinton hasn’t done well (think South Carolina), and wants to put distance between herself and Senator Obama without seeming like to rough of a politician.
