Clinton Pokes Fun at Obama Referencing Celestial Choirs

Feb 24, 2008 3:54pm

ABC News’ Eloise Harper reports: Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., continued to critique presidential rival, Sen. Barack Obama’s speaking style, poking fun at him speaking in Rhode Island Sunday afternoon.

"None of the problems we face will be easily solved. Now, I could stand up here and say lets just get everybody together, lets get unified." Clinton continued, "the sky will open, the light will come down celestial choirs will be singing, and everyone will know that we should do the right thing and the world will be perfect. Maybe I’m just lived a little long but I have no illusions about how hard this will be. You are not going to wave a magic wand and make the special interests disappear."

Clinton continued to attack Obama, D-Ill., for misleading voters about her health care plan saying what was "inexplicable to me is his refusal to put forth a plan for universal health care. And his continuing attacks on my plan to do so. I believe Senator Obama says one thing in speeches but his campaign does something else" Clinton charged. "In his speech he says he has a universal healthcare but his plan is not. His plan can not cover everyone because there is no requirement that people be covered."

Clinton held the rally in Providence, which was sandwiched by two fundraisers. The New York senator acknowledged that her Democratic rival was out-spending her in this state, but reassured her supporters that she was raking in one million dollars a day, She then urged her guests to go to her Web site to see what she is doing, and asked for a little help as well.

At a rally in Toledo, Ohio, today, Obama responded, "This morning, apparently, she said, ‘well, ya know, it’s just an illusion, it’s a delusion to think that, somehow, you’re just going to wish all the special interest power in Washington away, that you’re just going to somehow wish it away, that they’re just going to go away, because you hope it happens.’

"Well, she’s right about that, but it doesn’t help if you take a million dollars, or 2 million dollars, or 3 million dollars, or 5 million dollars from lobbyists for the special interests. It definitely won’t go away then. Anyway, we can change our trade agreements to reflect the interests of all people. We can invest in infrastructure in this country."
