Obama Likes Clinton

Hillary Clinton had some fun when the debate moderator asked what she would tell New Hampshire voters who found Barack Obama more likable. "Well, that hurts my feelings, but I'll try to go on," she said, to a big laugh. Then, as she was saying she too thought Obama was "very likable," he interjected: "Uh, you're likable enough, Hillary." The awkward moment became a highlight of the primary season. A few days later, New Hampshire said it liked Clinton more as she defeated Obama in the primary, 39.1 percent to 36.5 percent.
