Clinton Attacks Obama by Mailer

010808 mailer web Clinton Attacks Obama by MailerThis attack mailer from Hillary Clinton’s campaign appeared in some New Hampshire mailboxes in the last few days. The flyer questions Barack Obama’s pro-choice credentials, citing seven “present” votes he cast in the Illinois state Legislature. The implication is that Obama lacked the courage to stand up to the anti-abortion crowd.

What the mailer leaves out is that pro-choice leaders in Illinois asked legislators to vote “present” viewing the bills in question as cheap election-year stunts from anti-abortion politicians, and that Planned Parenthood leaders from Illinois have defended Obama against Clinton’s attacks on the votes.
