RUSH: I don’t know if you were hearing about this, but Hillary and Obama are starting to take swipes at each other, ladies and gentlemen. In fact, Obama showed up in New York yesterday at the TimeWarner building. Richard Parsons, the CEO, had about 250 in there to listen to Obama, and apparently they were all dazzled! It was off the record, so nobody is reporting, even though there are a bunch of journalists in there. I’m told Barbara Walters fell asleep for part of it, but there were a whole bunch of journalists in there, and they haven’t leaked much. The only thing that’s been really leaked is that he said, ‘I’m the most qualified and the best qualified to lead this country.’ He also praised George Clooney as a serious individual, a very serious man. So they’re just going raves in there, apparently. He and Hillary are starting to take swipes at one another. Yesterday, on the campaign trail, Hillary called into the Quad City Times, a newspaper, and referring to Obama’s comments about meeting with leaders from Iran and Syria and Cuba and North Korea and Venezuela. Now, this is cell phone quality audio here. It’s only about 11 seconds but this is what she said about Obama.

HILLARY: I thought that was irresponsible and, frankly, naïve to say that he would commit to meeting with Chavez and Castro and others within the first year.

RUSH: Not to be outdone, Senator Obama, the ‘magic negro,’ called into the Quad City Times himself after hearing about Mrs. Clinton’s earlier interview, and here’s his response to her.

OBAMA: If you want to talk about irresponsibility and naïveté, look at her vote to authorize George Bush to send our troops into Iraq without an exit plan and then asking the Pentagon about what the plan is five years later.

RUSH: Ohhhh! Now, this didn’t happen during the YouTube debate, but it’s happening even as we speak. You know, Barack Obama leads in fundraising, and apparently now in focus groups of Democrats who watched the YouTube debate on CNN, he was the big winner. But there’s something to learn, ladies and gentlemen, from this exchange. Play these two again. What I want you to do out there, Ed, is play these two back-to-back, because, ladies and gentlemen, this is a great demonstration of why you need me hosting this program, how I can see the stitches on the fast ball, how I am able to read between the lines. These are short bites. Hillary’s runs 11 seconds. Obama’s runs 14 seconds. We’ll play them for you back-to-back. You tell me what we learn from these two bites.

HILLARY: I thought that was irresponsible and, frankly, naïve to say that, uh, he would commit to meeting with, uh, Hugo Chavez and Castro and others within the first year.

OBAMA: If you want to talk about irresponsibility and naïveté, uh, look at her vote to authorize George Bush to send our troops into Iraq without an exit plan and then, uh, asking the Pentagon about what the plan is five years later.

RUSH: All right, I don’t want to go to calls on this. I’m just asking the question for you to ponder amongst yourselves out there. What is it we can learn? There’s something major here that we can learn from these two sound bites. You need it again? Okay. Ed, can you play those again, are they ready to go again? Yeah, okay, one more time here, ladies and gentlemen. Listen very, very carefully here.

HILLARY: I thought that was irresponsible and, frankly, naïve to say that he would commit to meeting with Chavez and Castro and others within the first year.

OBAMA: If you want to talk about irresponsibility and naïveté, uh, look at her vote to authorize George Bush to send our troops into Iraq without an exit plan and then asking the Pentagon about what the plan is five years later.

RUSH: All right, here’s what we can learn from that exchange. It’s very simple. Hillary Clinton has a better cell phone. It was so obvious to me, and I knew that this would escape many of your observations. So I wanted to point that out.
