Obama Calls Out Clinton on Drivers Licenses
Just as it appeared Clinton would escape the illegal immigration discussion without a mention of her support and then opposition to a plan in New York to give drivers' licenses to illegal immigrants, Obama brought it up.
In the "more out of sadness than anger" tone that anyone watching Obama deliver tough hits has grown accustomed to, Obama noted that "At this point she has a clear position but it took a while." OUCH.
Why did he mention that fact? Not to score political points, Obama insisted, but rather to "underscore the fact that this is a difficult political issue."
Never one to be one-upped, Clinton hit back with a sweet as pie smile on her face. "A week after I said I would try to support my governor despite my personal opposition, you were asked the same question and could not answer it," she said to Obama. Zing!
