Clinton, Obama debate in Ohio

CLEVELAND (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton is looking to slow rival Barack Obama in tonight's debate in Ohio.

The debate is the last chance that the Democratic presidential hopefuls have to make their case before the March 4th primaries in Ohio and Texas.

Obama has won 11 straight primaries and caucuses. And now, even some of Clinton's supporters say she's got to win on March 4th to keep her campaign alive.

Clinton campaigned in Lorain, a blue-collar city in Ohio, hours before the debate, telling voters that there are "a lot of people who really need help."

Obama, meanwhile, appeared in Cleveland with Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd, who announced his endorsement.

Rhode Island and Vermont also hold their primaries on March 4th. A total of 370 delegates are at stake.
