I have said publicly no option should be off the table, but I would certainly take nuclear weapons off the table, Mrs. Clinton said. This administration has been very willing to talk about using nuclear weapons in a way we havent seen since the dawn of a nuclear age. I think thats a terrible mistake.

Phil Singer, a spokesman for Mrs. Clinton, said she had been responding to a specific news report that the Bush administration was considering nuclear strikes on Iran. The context, Mr. Singer said, was different from the one raised last week by Mr. Obama.

Senator Clinton was not talking about a broad hypothetical, nor was she speaking as a presidential candidate, Mr. Singer said. Given the saber-rattling that was coming from the Bush White House at the time, it was totally appropriate and necessary to respond to that report and call it the wrong policy.
