Republicans are vying to take on Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders tops Hillary Clinton in a New Hampshire poll, Jeb Bush is bringing up Iraq and a liberal Harvard professor not-named Elizabeth Warren is jumping into the Democratic race. Meanwhile, Rick Perry's campaign has officially run out of money, while Marco Rubio struggles with his stance on abortion and his place in the conservative line up.
