LAT/AP: Senator Clinton Says Rival in 'Swampy Territory'
Clinton Says Rival in 'Swampy Territory'
By MARC HUMBERT, Associated Press Writer

ALBANY, N.Y. -- Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton accused her Republican challenger of getting into "swampy territory" after he was quoted Monday as saying that Clinton was unattractive when she was younger and that she had a lot of work done on herself. John Spencer denied discussing the senator's looks during a conversation with a New York Daily News reporter....

***

During a campaign stop at a senior citizens center in Watervliet, just outside Albany, Clinton said: "It's unfortunate that when you don't have anything positive to say about the issues that we can get off in some pretty swampy territory."...

***

Clinton adviser Howard Wolfson said Clinton has had no plastic surgery or similar appearance-enhancing work.

"I'm not sure what's worse, that Mr. Spencer made these insulting comments or that instead of owning up and apologizing for them, he is lying about them," Wolfson added. "Either way, it's clear that he is unfit for the U.S. Senate."

Clinton joked with reporters during her stop in Watervliet that "my high-school picture was cute." It was on the tabloid's front page....

Hoping he doesn't blame his wife when he loses to Hillary.

5. If Spencer said what he's said to have said, I think Senator Clinton is
being incredibly gracious toward him.

Had she gone over to his office and decked the son-of-a-bitch, it would have been just fine with me.

8. I really don't even know why she is paying attention to this assclown
why did she even debate him? She should act like she does not even have an opponent and run an all positive campaign. This could be the best year for Democrats in New York in a generation.
