So Much for "Changing the Tone"
The two leading Democratic candidates for president (and I can't believe I'm writing that phrase a year-and-a-half before the election), Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama went after each other yesterday, all guns blazing. Seems Obama backer David Geffen chided Hillary and Bill Clinton, saying of them, "Everybody in politics lies, but they do it with such ease, it's troubling." Hillary went ballistic and demanded that Obama, who has pledged to "change the tone of politics," disavow Geffen's comments and return his campaign contributions. Instead, Obama's spokesman Robert Gibbs responded sweetly, "It is ironic that the Clintons had no problem with David Geffen when he was raising them $18 million and sleeping at their invitation in the Lincoln Bedroom."
