The Experience Factor

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton was asked directly whether Obama had the experience to be president, but she basically dodged it.

"I'm running on my own qualifications and experience," Clinton said. "It's up to the voters to make these decisions."

Pressed by moderator George Stephanopoulos on her recent disagreement with Obama on whether the president should meet with foreign dictators, Clinton reiterated the differences between the two. "I do not think the president should give away the bargaining chip of a personal meeting unless you know what you are going to get out of it," she said.

Obama, too, played nice but highlighted the difference between himself and Clinton. "There is a substantive difference between myself and Sen. Clinton when it comes to meeting with our adversaries," he said.
