Candidates Look Ahead to Tuesday and Beyond

Howard Dean says he regrets burning through most of his campaign money on losses in Iowa and New Hampshire.

Dean told NBC's "Meet the Press" that he "took a gamble and it didn't pay off."

The former Vermont governor concedes he probably won't win any of Tuesday's seven presidential contests, "with the possible exception of New Mexico." But he's vowing to press on.

Democratic front-runner John Kerry was campaigning in North Dakota today. He accused President Bush of an "incredible cave-in" to drug companies that will cost taxpayers billions.

Retired General Wesley Clark campaigned in Oklahoma with the soldier credited with saving his life in Vietnam.

In Delaware, Joe Lieberman said new endorsements from three newspapers in the South and Northwest show he's the candidate with national support. But that has yet to be borne out by national and state polls, which mostly show him in single digits.
