Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton said Saturday that even if rival Barack Obama's claim that he has more support from her husband's administration were true, the statement was "silly" because voters look at qualifications, not a candidate's brain trust. "This is not a campaign between lists of advisers," Clinton told reporters in a packed diner. "This is a campaign between real people with experience and qualifications to become president on day one." In Iowa on Friday, Obama suggested he had the support of more of former President Bill Clinton's administration figures than the former first lady. Lists provided by both campaigns quickly showed hers is almost twice as large. "Why is the national security adviser of Bill Clinton, the secretary of the Navy of Bill Clinton, the assistant secretary of state for Bill Clinton, why are all these people endorsing me?" Obama said. "They apparently believe that my vision of foreign policy is better suited for the 21st century."
