By the numbers

5: Number of days until the New Hampshire primary.

17: Number of times Clinton said “change” in a recent stump speech, hoping to convince voters in a throw-the-bums-out mood that she can reform Washington from the inside. “Everybody in this campaign is talking about change,” she said.

23: Number of times Obama said “change,” hoping his passion overcomes his lack of experience. “Everyone is talking about change,” he said. Get the point?

500: The number of people who attended a rally for Sen. Joe Biden on Tuesday, a huge crowd for a candidate polling in single digits. Any of the Republican candidates would be thrilled to draw such a big audience, which suggests that GOP voters aren’t as energized as Democrats.

15: Years since Huckabee entered politics as a former Baptist minister.

6: Millions of dollars Romney spent to air ads in Iowa.
