The Clinton Statement

Here's the statement from Maggie Williams (via TPM):


If Barack Obama's campaign wants to suggest that a photo of him wearing traditional Somali clothing is divisive, they should be ashamed. Hillary Clinton has worn the traditional clothing of countries she has visited and had those photos published widely.

This is nothing more than an obvious and transparent attempt to distract from the serious issues confronting our country today and to attempt to create the very divisions they claim to decry.

We will not be distracted.

Yeah, well, Senator Clinton doesn't have this religious/patriotic whisper campaign circulating about her. So the photo, for Senator Obama, takes on an entirely different context and they know it.
