Obama's sound byte campaign slimes along

Here in Kenosha today, Hillary Rodham Clinton again threw down the gauntlet, saying she'll debate Barack Obama anywhere in the state.

"I would underscore the necessity, in my view, of letting the people of Wisconsin hear from both of us and compare and contrast us," she said after a campaign rally at the Brat Stop.

"People of Wisconsin deserve to have answers to their questions."

Obama has said he prefers to use his time in the state meeting voters and has aired ads countering Clinton's debate challenge, noting that he's debated her 18 times so far.

Clinton said Obama's only debated her once, one-on-one.

"It's a real disservice to the people of Wisconsin that you haven't had a chance to see the tough questions answered," she said.

On the other end of the state, Obama peppered his remarks to an audience at University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire with regurgitated excerpts from his current campaign ad.

"When CEOS are making more in 10 minutes than workers and the CEOs get the tax breaks and workers are left holding the bag, something is wrong," he said.

A walk through the ocean of that soul would scarecely get your feet wet.
