BARACK STARR

A top aide to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton on Thursday compared rival Sen. Barack Obama to independent prosecutor Kenneth Starr.

Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson said Obama's statement that he plans to be more critical of Clinton's record is reminiscent of the attacks the Clintons endured during the investigations in the 1990s.

"Our point here is to point out that after a campaign in which many of the questions that voters had in the closing days centered on concerns that they had over his state of preparedness to be commander in chief and steward of the economy, he has chosen instead of addressing those issues to attack Senator Clinton," Wolfson told reporters in a conference call. "They've announced that this is what they are going to do.

"I for one do not believe that imitating Ken Starr is the way to win a Democratic primary election for president. But perhaps that theory will be tested," he said.

By raising Starr's name, Wolfson revived memories of the investigation that led to former President Clinton's impeachment. But many Democrats feel the Starr investigation was politically motivated, and injecting Starr into the debate is one more way for Clinton to depict herself as a victim of enemies out to get her. She's already complained recently about the media being against her.

AP digg this

How I have missed the Clintonian craziness about the vest rightwing conspiracy...

But is comparing Barack Obama to Kenneth Starr the card the Clinton camp really wants to play? Kenneth Starr was mostly accurate in his investigations of the Clintons, which backhandedly implies Obama is correct in asking for the release of the Clintons' tax records.

P.S. This conjecture is obviously tongue in cheek... everyone knows that Barack Obama is a conservative tool

P.P.S. This is also about the best attack rhetoric either candidate can come up with, without sounding rhetorical.
