The Press Did It!

The Clinton campaign is asserting that the press (not her campaign) uncovered evidence of Barack's "plagiarism."

Well, that could be. But it's worth pointing out that one of the clips of Deval Patrick used to "prove" the Clintons' case features Patrick orating with -- you guessed it! -- Bill Clinton standing right next to him. Is there a chance, just maybe, that when the ex-President heard some of Barack's speeches, he might have remembered the Deval speech?

And is it ever possible, just maybe, that when a campaign wants to attack a rival without leaving any fingerprints, they just point a friendly reporter in the "right" direction, and then stand back and claim they're simply not involved?
