It was quite an April Fools Day prank that Hillary Rodham Clinton pulled on reporters.
The Democratic candidate walked into a Philadelphia news conference, looking somber. Reporters anticipated a big announcement.
Clinton told them it's been a "hard fought race," and that she needs to "do something so that our party and our people can make the right decision."
She then announced she's challenging Barack Obama to a bowling competition, calling attention to the Illinois senator's recent poor performance at a Pennsylvania bowling alley. Clinton said she wants it to be winner take all, and that she's willing to spot Obama two frames.
She continued that it was time for Obama's campaign "to get out of the gutter and allow pins to be counted." She says when the phone rings at 3 a.m., the nation needs "a president ready to bowl on day one."
And she urged Obama to "strike a deal" because "we don't have a moment to spare."
