The Punxsutawney primary was yesterday and Hillary Clinton saw a big win, and now there will be 6 more weeks of campaigning for the Democrats. Clinton won by a sizeable margin over Barack Obama in the Pennsylvania primary, and used the win to rally supporters, highlight weaknesses in Obama's campaign, and look ahead to the next primaries in Indiana and North Carolina. The talk of Clinton dropping out is gone, for now. And looking at the exit polls, both candidates still have work to do... Clinton registered low in perceptions of honesty, and Obama got clobbered among working class voters, and older voters. We'll talk with strategists from both campaigns about how they will adapt and continue the fight. Our political junkie is in "news special" mode today, in front of a live audience at the Newseum in Washington, DC. If you're in PA, IN, or NC... How are the campaigns playing out where you live?
