LANCASTER, Pa. — Liberal bloggers are in an uproar over the revelation that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton bashed MoveOn.org while asking donors for money at a private fundraiser.\ \ \ Mrs. Clinton said the liberal group — which was formed to help her husband fight off impeachment but now backs the presidential candidacy of her rival, Sen. Barack Obama — had “flooded” party caucuses and tried to “intimidate” her supporters.\ \ \ Activists wrote on the Internet that Mrs. Clinton has alienated a key part of the Democratic base in advance of Tuesday’s make-or-break Pennsylvania primary, though new national polls suggest she is experiencing a rebound among primary voters after trailing Mr. Obama for weeks.\ \ \ In her remarks to donors in February, Mrs. Clinton falsely said MoveOn had opposed the war in Afghanistan and said she disagrees with the group’s foreign-policy stance even though she courted its endorsement.
