Trying to reclaim the edge, she has accused him of plagiarism, dodging debates and falsehoods in mailings.--PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- With her White House prospects in jeopardy, Hillary Rodham Clinton has shifted from one tactic to another in trying to overtake rival Barack Obama.Howie P.S.: The NY Times story, "Taking Blows From All Sides and Weighing When to Punch Back," is from Obama's perspective. The WaPo's front-pager takes another angle, "Clinton Tests Out Populist Approach." Hillary is also working the air waves, as "Hillary's 'Moment' Replaying in Texas and Ohio" (WaPo's Channel '08,with video) reports. Ben Smith reports about a photo of Obama in Somali garb that has surfaced on Drudge. He claims it's from inside Hillaryland, but they aren't confirming or denying. And JedReport's recommended diary on Kos looks at the backroom connections between McCain and Clinton's top advisors.
At a Houston rally Saturday night, Clinton joked about a sign in the crowd that read, "The White House is no place for training wheels." At a Providence rally Sunday, she said: "If you were hiring a surgeon to operate on a family member, I think you'd want to know what they'd already done."
