More negative mailers

Barack Obama's claim that he, too, has been the target of "negative attacks" in mailers by the Clinton campaign is true.

On Saturday -- the day when Hillary Clinton was blasting Obama for mailers she was handed at a Cincinnati State rally -- thousands of Ohioans were finding a mailer in their mail boxes from the Clinton campaign that contained a "False Attack Alert: Don't Be Fooled by Barack Obama." It went on to make the same points that Clinton made that very day at Cincinnati State - that Obama was distorting her positions on health care and free trade.

Today, thousands of Ohio Democrats went to their mailboxes and found another mailer from the Clinton campaign. This one tried to tie Obama's vote in favor of an energy bill that gave billions in subsidies to oil companies to the fact that he has received $650,000 in campaign contributions from "energy company employees."
