Quote of the Day 7/24

“I thought that was irresponsible and frankly naive.”

- Hillary Clinton on Barack Obama's statement during last night's debate that he would meet with antagonistic leaders of foreign nations within the first year of his presidency. She said that she wouldn't risk being used for propoganda purposes.

Obama's camp points out that in April Clinton criticized President Bush for "refusing to talk with bad men." But Clinton shot back that she would never have laid out a timeline.

Clinton is trying to exploit her main rival's biggest weakness- a percieved lack of experience, and I think she's doing it pretty effectively. This isn't a huge issue, but a chance for Clinton to sow some seeds of doubt, and cement her front-runner status a bit further.
