Obama Takes His Gloves Off

Obama and Clinton jab back and forth....arguing, talking over each other...

Barack, Barack, Barack, Hillary, Hillary, Hillary

Obama: "You just said that I complimented the Republican ideas. That is not true. Ronald Reagan is a transformative political figure because he was able to get Democrats to vote against their economic interests..."

Then this:

"When I was out there working in the streets, seeing people losing their jobs, you were a corporate lawyer sitting on the board of Wal-Mart."

Obama: "I did say we've got to be thinking in the same transformative way.."

Clinton:

"I was fighting when you were practicing law and representing ...Rezko...the slum-landlord in Chicago."

Edwards; "This kind of squabbling: how many people are going to get health care because of this?"
