Don't shoot the messenger but according to Drudge the Hillary campaign is talking about exiting the campaign amid collapsing numbers. APparently there is a debate going on within the Clinton campaign. The issue is how badly does she want to be embarassed?
A Hillary exit would be exactly what John Edwards is hoping will happen. Maybe Edwards tag team was not so crazy after all.
I wonder how bad a defeat she can take in New Hampshire. What is Obama gets 50% and Hillary comes in third? At some point she will not be able to continue.
I've also been reading that she is beginning to run low on funds and her funders are abandoning her.
TALK OF HILLARY EXIT ENGULFS CAMPAIGNS

Facing a double-digit defeat in New Hampshire, a sudden collapse in national polls and an expected fund-raising drought, Senator Hillary Clinton is preparing for a tough decision: Does she get out of the race? And when?!
"She can't take multiple double-digit losses in New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada," laments one top campaign insider. "If she gets too badly embarrassed, it will really harm her. She doesn't want the Clinton brand to be embarrassed."
Key players in Clinton's inner circle are said to be split. James Carville is urging her to fight it out through at least February and Super Tuesday, where she has a shot at thwarting Barack Obama in a big state. But others close to the former first lady now see no possible road to victory, sources claim.
