Good Morning.....Obama is taking on Moma

Obama wants Clinton to explain Mississippi comments
Hattiesburg American

The Obama campaign in Mississippi will hold a press conference later today in Jackson calling on U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton to explain derogatory statements made about Mississippi.

In October, Clinton told the Des Moines Register newspaper that "I was shocked when I learned Iowa and Mississippi have never elected a woman governor, senator or member of Congress. There has got to be something at work here…when you look at the numbers, how can Iowa be ranked with Mississippi? That's not what I see. That's not the quality. That's not the communitarianism. That's not the openness I see in Iowa.”

The Obama campaign will call on the Clinton campaign to explain these remarks and a pattern of dismissing Southern states throughout this campaign, according to a press release sent to Mississippi media organizations.
