Clinton, Canada, NAFTA and the Obama campaign
Posted by: McQ on Friday, March 07, 2008

This morning, after the resignation of Samantha Power, the Obama campaign held a conference call in which David Plouffe challenged reporters to check out whether or not the Clinton campaign had contacted the Candians and said she wasn't serious about her NAFTA rhetoric as he had heard.

You can hear the call here.

Most would call that a classic case of amateurish deflection.

And it seems even more amateurish when it turns out not to be true because in such a case, you've just refocused negative attention on your campaign again:
Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton never gave Canada any secret assurances about the future of NAFTA such as those allegedly offered by Barack Obama's campaign, Prime Minister Stephen Harper's office said Friday.

With the NAFTA affair swirling over the U.S. election and Canadian officials skittish about saying anything else that might influence the race, it took the PMO two days to deliver the information.

After being asked whether Canadian officials asked for — or received — any briefings from a Clinton campaign representative outlining her plans on NAFTA, a spokeswoman for the prime minister offered a response Friday.

"The answer is no, they did not," said Harper spokeswoman Sandra Buckler.
Can you say "not ready for prime-time?"
