Democratic battle comes to Keystone state

The Democratic presidential battle will be joined by both forces in Pa.

Senators Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama are battling it out in the Delaware Valley today.

"Let me start by saying how excited and delighted I am to be back in Pennsylvania," Hillary Clinton said during a campaign stop Monday.

But make no mistake, both Hillary Clinton and Barak Obama will be even more excited and delighted if they walk away from next month's Pennsylvania primary with a bigger chunk of the 158 Keystone State delegates up for grabs.

Both campaign will hit the ground in earnest today.

Senator Clinton will campaign in Harrisburg this afternoon before coming to Philadelphia for a rally this evening at Temple University.

Senator Obama will be in Bucks County holding a town hall meeting with workers at a wind turbine plant in Fairless Hills.

No doubt they'll both answer questions about running mates.

"I've had people say I wish I could vote for both of you. Well that might be possible some day," Clinton has said.

Mr. Obama is shooting down that proposal in no uncertain terms.

"I want everybody to be absolutely clear. I'm not running for Vice President," was Obama's response to comments made by the Clinton camp that infer Hillary wouldn't mind a Clinton/Obama ticket. "I don't know how somebody who's in 2nd place... Person who's in first place."
