Clinton Spokesman Says Obama In Hot Water

By on 3.21.08 | 11:28AM

On a just completed conference call, a spokesman for Hillary Clinton said the Barack Obama campaign was getting desperate.

"At this point, it is no secret that the Obama campaign is in political hot water, given the news stories of the past couple of weeks, and is basically desperate to change the subject," Clinton spokesman Phil Singer said.

He chastised the Obama campaign for its efforts to "disenfranchise voters" in Florida and Michigan, "peddle photos with President Clinton shaking hands with Rev. Wright, less than 48 hours after calling for a high-minded conversation on race," and launch an "assault on (Hillary Clinton's) ethics."

"It's not a pretty site," Singer lamented. "He calls for high-minded debates, while practicing low down politics."

One aspect of the call that I found ironic was that Singer argued that by not supporting a way to count the votes in Florida and Michigan, the Obama campaign is "trying to advance strategy that will get Sen. Obama the nomination, but cost Democrats the general election."
