Hillary Clinton, Obama in Hot Exchange Over Hollywood Heavyweight's Comments
FOXNews.com ^ | February 21, 2007 | Major Garrett and David Rhodes

Posted on 02/21/2007 8:10:23 PM PST by do the dhue

WASHINGTON — The battle to be the 2008 Democratic candidate for president went negative Wednesday, as leading contenders Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama got into a virtual shouting match.

With more than a year and a half remaining before the next presidential election, the campaigns exchanged heated words after Clinton suggested Obama return funds to Hollywood bigwig David Geffen, who insulted Clinton in a newspaper article.

"We aren’t going to get in the middle of a disagreement between the Clintons and someone who was once one of their biggest supporters. It is ironic that the Clintons had no problem with David Geffen when was raising them $18 million and sleeping at their invitation in the Lincoln bedroom," Obama campaign communications director Robert Gibbs said in a statement that was e-mailed to the news media.

Geffen, a former "Friend of Bill," co-hosted — with Hollywood heavyweights Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg — a star-studded, $1.3 million fundraiser for Obama on Tuesday night in Beverly Hills.

Among the 300 contributors who forked over $2,300 each were George Clooney, Barbra Streisand, Jennifer Aniston, Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy and Morgan Freeman. Also in attendance were Dixie Chick Natalie Maines and director Ron Howard.

If this keeps up, Obama may end up in a "nasty accident".

Typical lawyer mentality. The slightest injury demands huge financial repercussions. Nice try, Hillary.

well, that would be a good thing though i don't suspect that dollars will be an issue for the libs in 08... they always manage to get a bundle even if they have to "violate" some campaign laws

Maybe Hussein Oboma should use Vince Foster as a consultant.

Wait, he's already dead. My bad.

I don't know. Hillary's baggage is already pretty heavy and a lot can happen in 21 months - to either one of them. I think she doesn't have the traction she expected.

If Geffen and Hillary are both involved with this, we're dealing with TWO queens.

I am really amazed at how anybody cares what a sulferbag, surgically altered cow like Hillary has to say about anything. She is a female troll who has Bullsh*ted her way through life and basically stands for nothing. Who is she and what is she doing here?

She is sinking herself with her doozy quotes like, "when I am president..." Who does this?

She is a Socialist pig and she is here to Socialize America.

Her College Professor said she was a Socialist way back when (and I do mean waaay back when).

Remember her Socialized Medical plan in the 1990's?

She is here to take my gun, kill the unborn, remove God from public view (so people are dependent upon the Queen instead of God), cut our Military and Intel capabilities, pass along entitles, and she is here to raise your taxes too.

They do not think [they do not know how, and cannot, anyway. Besides, thinking hurts] - and that's the really scary part.

Amazes me that Hussein fired the first shot.

Either Hussein does not know who his enemy is, or he has something on her that gives him a couple of them super balls (you know, the super balls you used to get out of the candy machine at the grovery store?).

Here's what gets me about these people. If I held a loaded .45 to the heads of any of them and gave them 30 seconds to tell me what Obama has done, or what qualifications he really has to be President of the United States of America........or I pull the trigger..............they'd all be dead.

OK, somewhat of a violent example, but you get the idea. These brainless lemmings haven't the slightest clue about Obama, his background, what he has or hasn't done, or what qualities one should seek in a US President. They're absolute, f**king morons.

This was FAR more a chance to "see and be seen" than an opportunity to make a political statement, folks. Believe it.

Actually, we can throw these comments back at Hitlery's face when she campaigns against the eventual Republican candidate.

Everyone has sumpin' on Hillary. It's common knowledge in every sense of the term.

But, for some reason, most people are afraid to use it.
