Best Lines of the New Hampshire Republican and Democratic Debates

Senator McCain: "Well, I really have to agree with Mitt. Governor, you really are the candidate of change." To which, the habitual flip-flopper Romney just shook his head and said, "This personal stuff isn't nice."

Senator Clinton: "Senator Obama's New Hampshire Chair is a lobbyist for the drug companies". To which, Obama said absolutely nothing... nothing... zilch... nada.

Obama's co-chair in New Hampshire, Jim Demers, is a state based lobbyist for the pharmaceutical and financial services industries amongst others. Michael Bauer, a member of Obama's LGBT steering committee, is a state based lobbyist in Chicago. And in Nevada, Obama's campaign also has three state based lobbyists who play senior advising roles in August last year.

When asked by reporters on the call why Hodges could work with the campaign even though he is a lobbyist, campaign manager, David Plouffe, said the campaign's policy for limiting lobbyists' influence applied to taking money only from federal registered lobbyists and PACs.


We're certainly not fans of Hillary in The Whirlpool, but a zinger is a zinger.

Obama! You got some 'splanin' to do!
