Democrats Focus On Iowa
November 23, 2007, 10:49 AM
The campaign's first voting state has become so vital that all the Democrats are focusing on it. It's where front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton hopes to begin a no-stumbles sprint to the nomination, and it's the one place her chief opponents, Barack Obama and John Edwards, have a chance to slow her down.
Most state and national polls indicate Clinton is strong, but her opponents see reason for hope in just the past couple of weeks.
Clinton has called Iowa her "toughest state" and a loss there could make her look vulnerable and create a competitive race for the 2,104 delegates needed to secure the nomination at next year's convention in Denver.
State polls show a tight race among Clinton, Obama and Edwards with the rest of the field lagging behind.
