Presidential Campaign Trail Getting Fierce

January 21, 2008 12:00:00 AM PST
With more crucial contests coming up, the competition is getting fiercer. Members of the same political parties are becoming more aggressively criticizing one another.In an exclusive interview with Good Morning America, Barack Obama accused Bill Clinton of distorting his record on the campaign trail.

"One of the things that we're going to have to do is to directly confront Bill Clinton when he's not making statements that are factually accurate," says Obama.

The former president--who has become increasingly confrontational while out stumping for his wife--shot back.

Clinton responded, "He said, 'in the '90s the good ideas came out from the republicans.' Which it'll be costly maybe down the road for him because it's factually not accurate."

The Democrats next face off in Saturday's South Carolina primary.

Today, all three spoke at a Martin Luther King Day rally at the State Capital.

Sen. John Edwards, Presidential Candidate, says "All three us are on the journey with you, on the march to equality and justice and fairness in the United States of America."

Among the GOP, all eyes now turn to Florida and the Republican primary on January 29th. A race Rudy Giuliani has staked his entire candidacy on.

Today, a lighthearted moment for the former New York Mayor when he asked to drive a pace car at the Daytona speedway.

If any of the Republicans have momentum, it would be John McCain, campaigning in the sunshine state after his crucial victory in South Carolina.

"We come into Florida with some wind in our back and recognize that we've got some hard campaigning in the next 8 days or so," says McCain.

And some more good news for John McCain, who is now leading Rudy Giuliani in two New York state polls, the Empire State votes on super Tuesday, February 5th.
