ABC News’ Eloise Harper Reports: Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) escalated her rhetoric against Barack Obama (D-Ill.) regarding Michigan and Florida.

Clinton, a bit more fiery when discussing this issue, said "I have as the Democratic National Committee has come out in favor of an effort to re-vote in Michigan. I do not know what Senator Obama is afraid of. But it is going to hurt our party and our chances in November so I would call on him to once again to join me in giving the people of Florida and Michigan the chance to be counted as we move forward in this nominating process."

Clinton was asked if she needed Florida and Michigan to count to catch up with Obama.

Clinton said "I have been in favor of fixing this problem no matter what my position. I have been consistently in favor of it."

Clinton then went on to say "for the life of me I don’t understand why Senator Obama seems to be afraid of," she said. "He comes up with all of these legalistic answers. The people of Michigan and their legislature made it very clear that they would proceed with a re-vote. Unfortunately Senator Obama’s campaign said ‘no.’ Two out of the three of us said yes. You will have to ask him what he is afraid of to go forward."
