The Clinton Press Conference — HIS

Mark Halperin

In the Lizard’s Thicket in Columbia, SC, the former president continued to carve up Obama on Iraq and Reagan with a smile on his face.

Took multiple questions from reporters. . . . spoke at length about his wife’s record, the current campaign debate, and the world financial meltdown.

Said Obama’s friendly words about Reagan were part of a strategy for “northern Nevada” in the caucuses.

Q. “Is Obama running against you, or Hillary Clinton or both of you?”

A. “Oh, I don’t know, I thought he was running against me for a while there in Nevada when he said that Republicans had most of the new ideas and you had to challenge the conventional wisdom of the ’90s. I thought we challenged the conventional wisdom of the 90s.”

Told reporters he plans to spend every night in South Carolina through the primary.
