Obama Slams Clinton's 'Textbook' Calculations
Made popular 2315 days ago in
Illinois Sen. Barack Obama leveled a fresh round of criticism at New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton yesterday, accusing his rival for the Democratic nomination of following a campaign plan that prizes calculation over candor and that is aimed more at winning an election than uniting the country.
Obama described Clinton as a skilled politician running a textbook campaign, but said the textbook itself is badly flawed and skewed against ordinary Americans. "It's a textbook that's all about winning elections, but says nothing about how to bring the country together to solve problems," he said.
The Illinois senator pointed to last week's debate in Philadelphia, in which he, former North Carolina senator John Edwards and Connecticut Sen. Christopher Dodd all challenged Clinton for being equivocal or engaging in political doubletalk, as emblematic of Clinton's strategy.
"As we saw in the debate last week, it encourages vague, calculated answers to suit the politics of the moment, instead of clear consistent principles about how you would lead America," he said. "It teaches you that you can promise progress for everyday people while striking a bargain with the very special interests who crowd them out."
