Back on the campaign trail in Greensboro, North Carolina, Barack Obama focused his speech on the economy.

"Our economy is grinding to a halt," Obama said. "Millions of people are at risk of losing their homes."

And he criticized Republican, John McCain.

"In his entire speech yesterday, he offered not one policy, not one idea, not one bit of relief to the nearly 35,000 North Carolinians who are forced to foreclose on their dream," Obama said.

McCain, who has been campaigning in California, says he is against government bailouts that reward irresponsible lending. In his speech today in Los Angles, he did not mention either of his democratic opponents, instead laying out his national security vision, and the need to build better relations with U.S. allies.

"When we believe international action is necessary, whether military, economic, or diplomatic, we will try to persuade our friends that we are right, but we, in return must be willing to be persuaded by them," McCain said.

Former President, Bill Clinton was back on the campaign trail today in West Virginia dismissing any notion that his wife should drop out.

"I've already had four people come up to me and say, ‘Tell her not to quit.' And I want to tell you something; my family's not big on quitting," Clinton said.

Tonight in Washington, Hillary Clinton will attend a ‘March to Victory' event with her daughter, Chelsea.
