Clinton Launches Obama Attack Web Sites

Thursday, 20 Dec 2007 10:50 PM

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign is going online to attack rival presidential candidate Sen. Barack Obama.

According to ABC News, Clinton's campaign has registered the names of two Web sites that will be used to launch serious criticisms of Obama. The sites are Votingpresent.com and Votingpresent.org, which will be used to portray Obama as cowardly.

The coward label comes from Obama having occasionally voted "present" as an Illinois state legislator when it came to contentious legislation.

The Obama campaign called the planned Web sites "politically motivated attacks in the eleventh hour of a closely contested campaign" and said Obama's "present" votes were used on bills "drafted in an unconstitutional manner. On other occasions, he voted present as part of legislative strategies, such as ones crafted by pro-choice forces in Illinois to thwart maneuvering by the opponents of a woman's right to choose."

Other similar Web sites include HillaryAttacks.BarackObama.com, which tracks criticisms Clinton has made about Obama, and Attacktimeline.com, which tracks the criticisms Obama and John Edwards have made against Clinton.
