Clinton Blasts McCain Ad

Monday, August 25, 2008

New York Sen. Hillary Clinton is denouncing a new campaign ad for John McCain that uses her words from the primary season.

CLINTON: Senator Obama's campaign has become increasingly negative.

ANNOUNCER: The truth hurt, and Obama didn't like it.

REPORTER: Clinton mentioned the ad when she spoke to New York delegates in Denver today.

CLINTON: I'm Hillary Clinton, and I do NOT approve that message (applause fades).

REPORTER: During this morning's speech, Sen. Clinton stuck with the theme of Unity, urging fellow New Yorkers to rally behind Sen. Obama and his running mate — Delaware Sen. Joe Biden.

Clinton expects some of her supporters to call out her name during the convention roll call, but the Associated Press reports that she's in talks with Obama about ending the roll call quickly, so Obama ultimately gets unanimous consent from Democrats.
