The Massachusetts governor said in a statement: “Sen. Obama and I are longtime friends and allies. We often share ideas about politics, policy and language. The argument in question, on the value of words in the public square, is one about which he and I have spoken frequently before. Given the recent attacks from Sen. Clinton, I applaud him responding in just the way he did.”
Democratic presidential candidate Joseph R. Biden Jr., a U.S. senator from Delaware, was driven from the nomination battle after delivering, without attribution, passages from a speech by British Labor party leader Neil Kinnock. A barrage of subsidiary revelations by the press also contributed to Biden's withdrawal: a serious plagiarism incident involving Biden during his law school years; the senator's boa(Please be quiet - edited)l exaggerations of his academic record at a New Hampshire campaign event; and the discovery of other quotations in Biden's speeches pilfered from past Democratic politicians.
The controversy became two frenzies in one when it was disclosed that the campaign of Massachusetts Gov. Michael S. Dukakis had earlier secretly distributed to several news media outlets an "attack video" juxtaposing the Biden and Kinnock speeches and revealing Biden's word theft. The Dukakis campaign at first stonewalled and denied any part in the tape's distribution, but when the truth emerged Dukakis was forced to fire his campaign manager, John Sasso, and political director, Paul Tully – the two who had orchestrated the maneuver. Dukakis himself insisted he had no prior knowledge of their actions, and though wounded, his candidacy survived the incident.

The idea that a possible Presidential candidate is sharing ideas with Shady Deval has me worried.
Cadlilac Deval Patrick is as shady as they get !
That bothers me, too. I can't stand Patrick...yet another carpet-bagger governor. Why do my people keep voting in these users? Clearly Patrick is setting up for a higher office. WTF!... My horse is barely staying in the race, so I have to pick someone soon. I think I'll sit this out and hold my nose while I vote in Nov.
Obama needs to make some plain, clear points about his policies. I don't know what he'd be like as a president because he won't tell me. It's like a big secret, covered by obscure language and vague ideas, and that bothers me a lot. McCain is a whore who will have Obama killed the night of the election if the numbers aren't working. Clinton...OMFG!
