Clinton campaigns as attention wanders elsewhere

By Ellen Wulfhorst

SUNRISE, Florida (Reuters) - The souvenir vendors outside Hillary Clinton's campaign appearances have added a new button to their wares that reads "Chelsea in 2016" with a picture of the former first daughter.

Attention, whether from button sellers or the national media, is leaving the fading presidential candidacy of Sen. Hillary Clinton behind as the former front-runner faces what most see as impossible odds to win the Democratic nomination.

Now in the spotlight is her rival, Sen. Barack Obama, who has solidified his lead among Democrats and is setting his sights on Republican candidate John McCain in the November election.
