Obama: We're Fighting Hillary, McCain

Wednesday, 12 Mar 2008 10:43 AM

By Jim Meyers

Barack Obama says his campaign is fighting on “two fronts” for the presidency — against attacks from both Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton and presumptive Republican nominee John McCain.

In a fundraising e-mail sent to supporters after his victories in Wyoming on Saturday and Mississippi on Tuesday, Obama said that in winning the two states “we showed the strength and breadth of this movement. But just turn on the news and you’ll see that Senator Clinton continues to run an expensive, negative campaign against us. Each day her campaign launches a new set of desperate attacks . . .

“Over the weekend, an aide to Senator Clinton attempted to diminish the overwhelming number of contest we’ve won by referring to places we’ve prevailed as ‘boutique’ states and our supporters as the ‘latte-sipping crowd.’ I’m not sure how those terms apply to Mississippi and Wyoming — or Virginia, Iowa, Louisiana, or Idaho for that matter.”

Obama was referring to comments from an unnamed Clinton aide to the Times of London. His e-mail continues: “The fact remains that Senator Clinton’s campaign will continue to attack us using the same old Washington playbook. And now that John McCain is the Republican nominee, we are forced to campaign on two fronts.”

Obama asks supporters to make a $25 contribution, saying, “in the face of attacks from Hillary Clinton and John McCain, we need to be ready to take them on.”
