"Obama: A Clinton-led ticket at best "barely" wins"
Barack Obama said today that a presidential ticket led by Sen. Hillary Clinton would be destined to largely repeat the disappointing Democratic performances of 2000 and 2004 and could aspire only to eke out a victory.The Illinois senator portrayed Clinton’s campaign so far as one based on obfuscation and avoidance of clear political stands.
In the primary, Clinton is trying “to make herself as small a target as possible to potential Republican attack by avoiding laying out too specific an agenda. But I think you can’t build a majority and bring about real, meaningful change if that’s the approach you take,” Obama said.In a speech he delivered in Spartanburg, S.C., shortly after the interview, Obama accused Clinton of playing from a worn campaign "textbook" that "encourages vague, calculated answers to suit the politics of the moment, instead of clear, consistent principles about how you would lead America."
