Agents of Sen. Hillary Clinton are spreading the word in Democratic circles that she has scandalous information about her principal opponent for the party’s presidential nomination, Sen. Barack Obama, but has decided not to use it. The nature of the alleged scandal was not disclosed.\ This word-of-mouth among Democrats makes Obama look vulnerable and Clinton look prudent.

I don’t buy it; [Obama] doesn’t strike me as a skirt-chaser. Which means it’s either a financial scandal — not a subject Her Majesty would want to introduce into the campaign — or maybe … his prior drug use?
Obama fired back at the Clinton campaign
“If the purpose of this shameless item was to daunt or discourage me or supporters of our campaign from challenging and changing the politics of Washington, it will fail. In fact, it will only serve to steel our resolve,” the Illinois senator said. He urged Clinton to “either make public any and all information referred to in the item, or concede the truth: that there is none.”
