MANCHESTER, N.H. -- With new polls out this morning showing Barack Obama still leading Hillary Clinton in Iowa and gaining ground on her in New Hampshire, Clinton's national campaign manager is calling on Obama to remove an ad that began airing in the Granite State yesterday they said was "misleading".
This is the ad in question:
Manager Patti Solis Doyle said the ad was inaccurate because the ad claims to "cover everyone" with healthcare coverage and his plan doesn't guarantee that every American will have coverage because they don't mandate every to have it as the Clinton and John Edwards plan do.
Obama spokesman Reid Cherlin said it was "curious" that the Clinton campaign has decided to attack the ad today instead of when it first ran in Iowa two months ago.
On a conference call with reporters Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson said the change in tone away from a campaign that didn't "attack Democrats" was in response to the attacks that Obama and Edwards have been launching on her.
