New Hampshire: Is It Make or Break for '08?

Clinton and Obama now have overlapping messages as they try to stir up support.

"I'm fired up and I'm ready to go," Clinton cheered to a crowd in Davenport, Iowa, on Thursday.

"Are you fired up? Are you ready to go? Fired up! Ready to go!" Obama chanted to a younger crowd that rallied back in Greenfield, Iowa, in December.

Clinton is not the only candidate who is trying to steal back the limelight in one long weekend.

"The status quo is yesterday. And change is tomorrow. And tomorrow begins today, right here in New Hampshire," said John Edwards, who edged out Clinton forsecond place in Iowa.

Edwards insists he's no dark horse. His new slogan, perhaps the oddest of the campaign so far, compares himself to a thoroughbred racehorse. "We are Seabiscuit. I am the people's candidate," Edwards said in Manchester, N.H., today.
