Clinton On Obama: 'Change You Can Xerox'

Hillary Rodham Clinton has accused Democratic presidential rival Barack Obama of political plagiarism in their latest debate in Texas.

Clinton said Obama represented "change you can Xerox." The line drew some boos.

Obama says the disputed words were given to him by his friend and national co-chairman and that the accusation is part of "the silly season."

The 90-minute debate was the next to last before the March 4th primaries in Texas and Ohio and was mostly civil.

In a university auditorium in the heart of Texas, Clinton and Obama agreed that high-tech surveillance measures along the border are preferable to construction of a fence to curtail illegal immigration.

But they sparred frequently about health care. Clinton repeated her charge that Obama's plan would leave 15 million Americans uncovered. Obama accused the former first lady of mishandling the issue by working in secrecy when her husband was in the White House.

    Someone better research Obama. Where did he come from? He like appeared out of nowhere. He doesn't have experience but he's leading the Democrats. Research into who is backing him. Who are they? Where do they come from, and what is their motive. Um, this is strange.......

    I think Hillary is right on. You cannot trust anyone who cannot speak his/her own mind. You've never seen either Bill or Hillary reading something someone else wrote for...them....wait...nevermind. I guess it is good that the writers strike is over.
