So you don't want to play with us? What if we MAKE you play? Most of the Democratic candidates (save Clinton and Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn.) filed papers to get themselves off the Michigan primary ballot, but Michigan lawmakers won't take no for an answer. "Michigan leaders of both political parties are considering legislation that would place the names of four boycotting Democratic candidates back on the Jan. 15 primary ballot," write the Detroit News' Gordon Trowbridge and Charlie Cain. Said Debbie Dingell, a Michigan representative on the Democratic National Committee: "We have to be prepared to play hardball."
"Every time I answer, I limit." -- New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner, to The Washington Post's Joel Achenbach, on his famously inscrutable answers about the primary date.
"Right now my goal is to make sure that I am the nominee and that she is still the senator from New York." -- Obama, on CNN, on whether he'd choose Clinton as his running mate.
"When you get to be our age, it's kind of nice to have all these men obsessed with you. I guess I could put that spin on it." -- Clinton, on MSNBC, on the attacks she weathered at this week's Republican debate.
