Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton are holding more campaign rallies in Texas Friday, kicking off the final weekend of campaigning before Tuesday's key Democratic primaries in the Lone Star State and Ohio.

In an interview with the Cincinnati Enquirer, Clinton says she has a record of reaching across the aisle to work with Republicans on several issues. However, Obama tells the paper that Clinton's "natural inclination" is to take an adversarial role against Republicans. He says he would work with both sides as president because he doesn't believe "any one party has a monopoly on wisdom."

Obama is also taking shots at the man who is the runaway front-runner for the Republican nomination, John McCain. Campaigning in Texas Thursday, Obama said the country is "on the brink of recession" because of "a failure of leadership in Washington" that he said includes tax cuts implemented by President Bush and backed by McCain.
