My Way News - Obama Aide: Bill Clinton Like McCarthy

My Way News - Obama Aide: Bill Clinton Like McCarthy: "Hillary Rodham Clinton's campaign is trying to clarify comments by former President Clinton that seemed to question Barack Obama's patriotism - comments an Obama aide likened to Joseph McCarthy.

Clinton's campaign said the comments were being misinterpreted and quickly posted a clarification on its Web site. But retired Air Force Gen. Merrill 'Tony' McPeak said he was disappointed by the comments and compared them to those of McCarthy, the 1950s communist-hunting senator.

The former president made the comments while speculating about a general election between his wife and Republican John McCain.

'I think it would be a great thing if we had an election year where you had two people who loved this country and were devoted to the interest of this country,' said Clinton, who was speaking to a group of veterans Friday in Charlotte, N.C."

Bill Clinton escaped again and found a live microphone he could stand behind and shake his finger at people. If Bigfoot Bill gives Hillary any more "help" she will be lucky to hold onto her Senate seat next time around.
