Obama Watch


PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- Democrat Barack Obama was in Rhode Island today on his first visit to the state as a presidential candidate. During the campaign stop, the Illinois senator portrayed rival Hillary Rodham Clinton as a candidate who shifted positions for political expediency.

Rhode Island, Texas, Ohio and Vermont voters go to the primary polls on Tuesday.

Obama spoke six days after Clinton came to the same arena and depicted Obama as naive and unrealistic about dealing with tough issues like health care reform and global warming.

Polls show Clinton with a lead in Rhode Island. The Rhode Island primary offers 21 Democratic delegates.
