Hillary Steers Clear of Attacks on Palin

In her first major campaign appearance following Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's nomination as the Republican vice presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton steered clear of directly taking on John McCain’s running mate.

Palin is appealing for the support of women who backed Clinton during the Democratic primaries, the Boston Globe reported. But the closest Hillary came to going after her during a campaign stop in Kissimmee, Fla., on Monday morning was to change her line from the Democratic convention in Denver to: "No way, no how, no McCain, no Palin."

She also said, while praising Obama and Joe Biden for their pledges to help the middle class on taxes, healthcare, equal pay for women, and other issues, "I didn't see that from Senator McCain and Governor Palin. I saw more of the same."

Other Democratic female office-holders have been sent out by Barack Obama's campaign to paint the Alaska governor’s views on abortion and other issues as extreme.

When Clinton was asked about Palin in New York City on Saturday, she demurred, responding: "This election is about issues, and that's what's going to matter to people at the end of the day."
