Clinton's camp slams Obama for not apologizing
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Sen. Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign spokesman blasted Sen. Barack Obama Wednesday after his campaign refused to apologize for critical comments made by Hollywood executive David Geffen about the senator and her husband, former President Bill Clinton.

"By refusing to disavow the personal attacks from his biggest fundraiser against Senator Clinton and President Clinton, Senator Obama has called into serious question whether he really believes his own rhetoric," said a statement released by Clinton's spokesman Howard Wolfson in a statement was titled "OBAMA EMBRACES SLASH & BURN POLITICS." "How can Senator Obama denounce the politics of slash & burn yesterday while his own campaign is espousing the politics of trash today?"

Wolfson added, "When one of Senator Clinton's supporters made an inappropriate statement, her campaign disavowed it immediately and the supporter apologized for his words. Why won't Senator Obama do the same?"
