This is easily the best I've seen from Barack Obama:
WASHINGTON -- Barack Obama mocked Hillary Rodham Clinton Friday for playing the gender card -- accusing her of crying "don't pick on me" after her first major campaign setback. In a TV interview, Obama ridiculed Clinton for invoking her sex as a political liability -- saying he won't use his race as a shield and Clinton isn't fit to be president if she hides behind gender every time she's attacked.Hillary may still win her party's nomination, but her free ride is ending.
"I am assuming and I hope that Sen. Clinton wants to be treated like everybody else," the Illinois senator told host Matt Lauer on NBC's "Today" show early Friday.
Obama scoffed at Clinton's complaint Thursday that she was being forced to "compete in the all-boys' club" of presidential politics. "When we had a debate back in Iowa a while back, we spent, I think, the first 15 minutes of the debate hitting me on various foreign policy issues. And I didn't come out and say: 'Look, I'm being hit on because I look different from the rest of the folks on the stage,' " he said.
"We're not running for the president of the city council. We're running for the presidency of the United States."
