Both Democratic Candidates Take Aim And Fire At One Another

[Hillary Clinton] clutched two negative fliers sent to Ohio voters by the Obama campaign that she says make false claims about her position on health care and trade agreements. "Shame on you Barack Obama. It is time you ran a campaign that is consistent with your messages in public. That's what I expect from you," Mrs. Clinton said.

Mr. Obama quickly fired back. "These are accurate," he said of the fliers. He also accused his rival of hypocrisy in denouncing the negative campaigning. "We have been subject to constant attack from the Clinton campaign, except when we were down 20 points. And that was true in Iowa. It was true in South Carolina. It was true in Wisconsin. And it is true now."

He also questioned why Sen. Clinton raised the issue of the fliers now, weeks after they were first mailed to Ohio voters. "It makes me think there was something tactical about her getting so exercised this morning," he said at a campaign stop in Columbus, Ohio.

Who cares what Senator Clinton "expects" from Barack Obama? What should matter in this campaign - and eventual election - is what WE THE PEOPLE expect!

Mr. Obama was correct in his assertion that what Clinton did was "tactical." Everything she does is tactical. When she's down, she goes on the attack. She's a hypocrite. When she's up, she's all "peaches and cream." What a fake!

She has been working on a "makeover" of her image, but it isn't working. Her true nature shows in the expressions on her face and in her speeches. She is not one to be denied what she feels she deserves.

Nobody deserves the office of President. They must work for it, and gain it by the approval of the voters. If she is rejected, it is only because we do not trust her.
