So is Obama really as squeaky clean as they have made him appear so far?

    Less than two months after ascending to the U.S. Senate, Barack Obama bought more than $50,000 worth of stock in two speculative companies whose major investors included some of his biggest political donors, the NYT will splash on Wednesday Page Ones.

    The paper claims, according to newsroom sources: One of the companies was a biotech concern that was starting to develop a drug to treat avian flu. In March 2005, two weeks after buying about $5,000 of its shares, Obama took the lead in a legislative push for more federal spending to battle the disease.

    The paper's Mike McIntire and Chris Drew get front placement [side by side with Libby Coverage] for details of Obama's most recent financial disclosure:

    It shows that he bought more than $50,000 in stock in a satellite communications business whose principal backers include four friends and donors who had raised more than $150,000 for his political committees.

    A spokesman for Obama says the senator did not know that he had invested in either company.

    Impacting late...
  2. The headline for this story should have been "Clinton Opposition Research Team Swings Into Action After Geffen Dustup."

    Welcome to the big leagues, rookie. Wait until they go after your wife, parents, everyone you went to school with, etc.
  3. Yup! The "War Room" is gearing up for a full assualt. Gonna' give the brutha' a beat down.
  4. Oh sure, the smear machines are the sole tactic of the Clintons alone...

    Heck, for all we know, Billary may have Karl Rove on retainer...

  5. Couldn't help but think of Obama vs. Clinton when I saw this pic
