With the Iowa caucus fast approaching on January 3 and Clinton said to be leading Obama by a statistically insignificant margin, various media outlets are reporting on a perceived uptick in squabbling over policy differences between the Clinton and Obama camps. Many in the media are interpreting Clinton's attacks on Obama as an indication of Obama's climbing numbers. Fair enough, given prior attacks on Clinton during debates and on the campaign trail were seen as confirmation of her leading status.
On the Republican side, the big story is Huckabee's growing recognition in Iowa. Multiple outlets reporting on polls show him actually ahead of Romney, despite the millions of advertising dollars the former Massachusetts governor has spent there.
