Sen. Hillary Clinton on Sunday decried the use of her voice in computer-disseminated "robo-calls" by Republican presidential candidate John McCain's campaign.

The calls, which automatically dial voters in hard-fought battleground states, play a recording of Clinton made during the Democratic primary battle.

In the recording, Clinton derides what she said was a lack of experience by then-rival and fellow Democrat Barack Obama, who went on to win the party's presidential nomination.

"Senator Hillary Clinton does not approve this message, and as she criss-crosses the country, she has said time and again that the choice in this election could not be more clear," said the former first lady's spokeswoman, Kathleen Strand.

"The McCain/Palin ticket offers only more of the same failed policies, while the Obama/Biden ticket offers the vision, leadership and positive solutions we need. I wonder why the Republicans aren't using those words?" Strand said.

According to news reports, the robo-call starts out with a voice saying: "Listen to what Hillary Clinton had to say about John McCain and Barack Obama."

The recording of Clinton is heard to say: "In the White House, there is no time for speeches and on-the-job training.

"Senator McCain will bring a lifetime of experience to the campaign, and Senator Obama will bring a speech he gave in 2002," Clinton says in the recording.

"I think that is a significant difference," said the senator's voice on the robo-call, which reportedly is circulating in Ohio and Pennsylvania.
