The scoop from Washington

Plouffe says Obama campaign will not bring up past Clinton scandals. Disputes Washington Post story.


PHILADELPHIA, PA.--Obama campaign manager David Plouffe was just asked in a conference calll about a report in the Wednesday Washington Post about the Obama team now willing to go negative and bring up Clinton scandals from the past--cattle futures, etc.

“We are not going to do that," said Plouffe.

Washington Post excerpt: “In the two weeks leading up to the Indiana primary, a Democratic strategist familiar with the Obama campaign said aides are likely to turn to the controversies of Bill Clinton’s White House years — Hillary Clinton’s trading cattle futures, Whitewater and possibly impeachment.”

Conference call ongoing.



If one were going to bring up Bill Clinton controversies, I would think one would begin with this lie to the American people: "I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Miss Lewinsky. I never told anybody to lie, not a single time; never."

If one were to bring up Bill Clinton controversies...


George S. Patton, Jr. to Obama:

"A good plan violently executed now, is better than a perfect plan next week." ;

To Hillary:

"May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't."

Plato to both:

"Only the dead have seen the end of war."

Don[t let them rob us of our future. . .again!

Only Fair if all of Obama Scandals brought up. His are new, present and real
