The last statement of the day (I think) from Plouffe:

The Clinton campaign has admitted that they do not possess the scandalous information in question and we take them at their word. But what we dont accept is their assertion that this is somehow falling for Republican tricks.

This is exactly the kind of smear politics Democrats need to fight back on, regardless of the source or the party. Democrats should know that when Barack Obama is their nominee, he will not allow the Swift boat politics of fear and diversion to prevail in this campaign.

Also, Joe Klein calls the original column "outrageous" and a smear aimed at both Obama and Clinton. (Kind of like the original Madrassa item, come to think of it, which took exactly the same form -- a bank-shot smear.)

I had been planning to ignore this one -- because it was free of news -- as I suspect would have many reporters had the campaigns not engaged.
