Bill On Obama Mailers: "Pure Garbage" 26.2.2008 The Hotline
PORTSMOUTH, Ohio -- Bill Clinton weighed in for the first time this afternoon on the direct mailers Barack Obama 's campaign sent Ohio voters, calling the pieces "pure garbage." Hillary Clinton 's campaign has spent the last two days making a fuss about the mailers, which denounce her position on NAFTA and criticize her health care plan. The former president today sought to counter Obama's assertions that his wife's health care plan mandates coverage. "It is not true that Hillary's plan forces anybody to buy insurance that they cannot afford," he said. "Nobody will have to pay more than a certain fixed percentage of their income because you are eligible for refundable tax credits to keep your cost down. But everybody does have to be covered or ...
Hillary Clinton Holding Steady in Ohio 25.2.2008 NewsTrust Yahoo Pipes Feed
The new (741 LVs, Feb. 18-23, MOE +/- 3.6%) and (529 LVs, Feb. 21-24, MOE +/- 4.3%) show Hillary Clinton seems to be holding onto a lead of about 10% over Barack Obama in this crucial state. Candidate Ohio Poll 2/21-24 Quinnipiac 2/18-23 (2/6-12) Clinton 47 51 (55) 49.6 Obama 39 40 (34) 41.0 A couple caveats though: the Quinnipiac poll was taken over an especially long 6-day period including 1 day prior to Obama's Wisconsin win, and it should be noted, the results represent a net gain of 10% for Obama just in the last few weeks. In addition, the Ohio poll for some reason still appears to be polling John Edwards and Dennis Kucinich, who get 9% and 2% in the poll respectively with an additional 4% undecided. Clearly, most of those ...

Report From a US Military Outpost in Afghanistan 25.2.2008 Truthout.com
Elizabeth Rubin reports for The New York Times: "I went to Afghanistan last fall with a question: Why, with all our technology, were we killing so many civilians in air strikes? ... After a few days, the first question sparked more: Was there a deeper problem in the counterinsurgency campaign? More than 100 American soldiers were killed last year, the highest rate since the invasion. Why were so many more American troops being killed? To find out, I spent much of the fall in the Korengal Valley and elsewhere in Kunar province alongside soldiers who were making life-and-death decisions almost every day - decisions that led to the deaths of soldiers and of civilians."
