Clinton Advisor Apologizes for Obama Comments
A big mistep by New Hampshire Clinton advisor Michael Sheehan today.
He said voters should study Mr. Obama’s background as they chose a candidate, warning that Republicans would scour for new details about a period of Mr. Obama’s life more than 20 years ago when he admitted using marijuana and cocaine. According to The Post’s Web site, Mr. Shaheen said, “It’ll be: ‘When was the last time? Did you ever give drugs to anyone? Did you sell them to anyone?’ There are so many openings for Republican dirty tricks. It’s hard to overcome.”
The most important part of the story:
Clinton spokesman, Phil Singer, said, “These comments were not authorized or condoned by the campaign in any way.”
....In a statement later, Mr. Shaheen said, “I deeply regret the comments I made today, and they were not authorized by the campaign in any way.”
