It appears that CNN and The Union Leader are beginning to pressure Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, into participating in the first New Hampshire presidential debates. The Union Leader wrote an editorial criticizing the Democratic front runners and now CNN has a story on the two Senators. Here's the CNN story:
"Over the past several months, presidential candidates have been visiting New Hampshire to deliver speeches or to meet privately in relatively safe settings in an effort to court the state's influential electorate.
But in June the White House hopefuls will take the stage to answer questions directly from New Hampshire voters and the state's two largest media organizations in the first debates of the 2008 presidential contest held in the Granite State."
