Obama camp releases statement after Clinton criticizes his remark that McCain would be a better president than Bush.

Spokesman Tommy Vietor: “For someone who agreed with John McCain on voting for war in Iraq, agreed with him on supporting trade agreements like NAFTA and special trade privileges for China, and agrees with him on taking money from Washington lobbyists, Hillary Clinton’s latest attack is ridiculous even for her standards, and we’re confident the people of Pennsylvania will see right through it.”

Comes after Clinton says at rally in Johnstown, Pennsylvania: “We need a nominee who will take on John McCain, not cheer on John McCain, and I will be that nominee.” Read transcript here.

Earlier: Obama says at a rally in Reading, Pennsylvania Sunday that “all three of us would be better than George Bush.”
