Is time on Clinton’s side in Pennsylvania?

FROM CNN's Jack Cafferty:

Just under three weeks to go before the Pennsylvania primary, which seems like an eternity in the epic struggle between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.

History suggests that the more time Obama has to campaign somewhere, the better he does. A new poll seems to bear this out. The Quinnipiac University poll shows Clinton with a 9-point lead over Obama... 50% to 41%,that's down from a 12 point lead two weeks ago.

Also, Obama continues to rack up endorsements from some pretty key figures. Today former Indiana Congressman Lee Hamilton, co-chairman of the 9/11 commission and a former chairman of the Foreign Affairs and Intelligence Committees, endorsed Obama. Hamilton's endorsement could carry some weight in his home state of Indiana, which has yet to vote and it could boost Obama's standing on national security.

Meanwhile, Clinton took a hit this morning from New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd who described the former first lady as "tougher" than Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. It wasn't meant as a compliment.

And remember Clinton's argument that she is the only one able to win the big states? Well, it turns out she didn't win Texas on March 4th. Although Clinton won the primary she lost the caucuses. And Barack Obama actually walked out of Texas the winner, collecting more delegates than Senator Clinton: 99 to 94.

Here’s my question to you: Is the long stretch of time before the Pennsylvania primary to Hillary Clinton's advantage or disadvantage?

Interested to know which ones made it on air?
