WASHINGTON (AP) - Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is praising former rival Barack Obama, saying the Democratic presidential nominee is closing in on winning on Election Day.
Clinton acknowledged in an interview on NBC's "Today" show Monday that she still has some disappointment over losing the fight for the party's nomination. But she also said that she's working hard to get Obama and Sen. Joe Biden elected.
Clinton said in an interview taped for "Today" from Scranton, Pa., that she thinks Obama has substantially improved his chances by the way he has handled questions about the country's severe credit crisis. She said, "I think he's closing it."
