Senators Consider 2008 Presidential Election

Senator Evan Bayh continues to test the political waters for a 2008 presidential run.

The 50-year old former governor was in New Hampshire today, meeting with a few dozen voters.

If elected president, Bayh says his top priorities would be reducing carbon dioxide emissions and increasing American energy independence.

A week ago, he filed papers to form a presidential exploratory committee.

Bayh plans to decide over the holidays whether or not he wants to run for the democratic nomination.

Senator Bayh was not the only democrat meeting with New Hampshire voters today.

Barack Obama made a big impression tonight on his first ever visit to the state.

The Illinois senator spent the day speaking to supporters and signing copies of his best-selling book "The Audacity of Hope."

Then, it was off to a democratic fundraiser in Manchester.

Senator Obama says, “America is ready to turn the page. America is ready for a new set of challenges. This is our time. A new generation that is preparing to lead. You are part of that and I am grateful to be a partner with you on that.”

Obama says he is thinking about running for the White House but that he has not made a final decision.
