Barack versus Hillary

The Austin debate between Democratic presidential hopefuls Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton took a nasty turn. Obama prides himself as a candidate for “change” (I’m pretty sure he’s not talking about coins). Renewing her accusations that Obama plagiarizes some of the things he says, Clinton said this at the debate: “Lifting whole passages is not change you can believe in, it’s change you can Xerox.” The crowd booed.

And now, there are reports that Obama has lifted lines from the movie Malcolm X and is using them in his campaign. For more info, go to this Debbie Schlussel blog posting.
