A battle over Hillary Rodham Clinton's record as first lady broke out on two fronts Thursday, as a federal judge stepped into a dispute over the handling of still-unreleased Clinton phone logs and Barack Obama's campaign challenged her record on trade.
The latest twist in the debate over her time in the White House came in the courtroom of U.S. District Judge James Robertson, who forced the National Archives to undergo questioning about why it won't release 20,000 pages of Clinton's old phone logs.
Not enough resources, a lawyer representing the National Archives told the judge.
The archives deals with requests for documents on UFO sightings while letting the former first lady's records languish at the former president's library in Little Rock, Ark., complained Paul Orfanedes, head of the litigation department at Judicial Watch, the organization suing the archives for Clinton documents.
The National Archives wants to delay consideration of the Clinton phone logs for a year, then decide when it will start the six- to eight-month process of reviewing them for possible public disclosure.
It was the second straight day of wrangling over old Clinton documents.
On Wednesday, the National Archives placed on the public record more than 11,000 pages of Clinton's daily schedules from 1993 to 2000.
The Obama campaign and its supporters used the newly released material to build a case that Clinton hasn't been truthful about her position on the North American Free Trade Agreement. She was an early champion of the agreement that she now criticizes.

Now if someone could just get the Archives folks to reclassify those famous flying lamps as UFOs, then maybe we can get more of Hillary's records open for review.
"Were going to need a bigger popcorn popper."
I question her pants suit!
I’m surprised to see Pete Yost from AP writing something unfavorable to Mrs. Clinton. Another snowflake in the avalanche against her.
“Sen. Obama said that he would not engage in personal attacks,” said Singer. “Now, after losses in Ohio and Texas, the Obama campaign is explicitly attacking Sen. Clinton’s character.” Impossible! She has no character!
But ya gotta feel sorry for those dopes at the National Archives. I bet they have to wear full hazmat suits while sifting through all this old stuff.
You owe me a new keyboard !
Hah, I thought the judge was going to wear one of Hill’s pant suits, from the title. Grin.
going to wear one of Hills pant suits

But of course, the Obama campaign will blame the Bush administration.
”Sen. Obama said that he would not engage in personal attacks, said Singer. Now, after losses in Ohio and Texas, the Obama campaign is explicitly attacking Sen. Clintons character. Impossible! She has no character!”
Obama didn’t lose Texas.
Yep, the first thing I thought about was how much influence Kooky Kucinich must have applied on the National Archives.
Delay, delay, delay
