Obama: Hillary taking false credit/ Another Emerging Issue [UPDATE]

Obama is smart to make an issue of this.  Her years as a uniquely involved First Lady in the 1990's is one of the strengths Hillary continues to claim.  For her to distance herself from NAFTA, it means that she is distancing herself from a major achievement of her husband's administration, one that she claims as a part of her 35 years of experience.

Obama: Hillary taking false credit

February 24, 2008

By Christina Bellantoni - LORAIN, Ohio -- Sen. Barack Obama said today Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton presents herself as if she was "co-president" from 1993 to 2000.

Mr. Obama, holding a town hall forum at a wall board manufacturing plant here, said his criticism of her position on the North American Free Trade Agreement is fair because she includes her time as first lady for eight years as part of her claim to "35 years of experience."

"She has essentially presented herself as co-president during the Clinton years," the Illinois senator charged during a press conference after the town hall concluded. "Every good thing that happened she says she was a part of, and so the notion that you can selectively pick what you take credit for and then run away from what isn't politically convenient, that doesn't make sense."
