Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton on Saturday called Republican presidential candidate John McCain not a maverick but a "mimic" of President George W. Bush. Clinton made the remarks at a Human Rights Campaign dinner, where she was filling in for Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden. Barack Obama's running mate canceled his weekend campaign events because his wife's mother is ill. Clinton spoke by satellite from Los Angeles to a few thousand people who attended the national gay rights group's event. Clinton said Biden called and asked her to fill in for him because of the family emergency. Rather than sharing her thoughts, she said, "I want to share with you the eloquent remarks that Joe had prepared." Clinton sought to tie McCain to Bush, saying the Arizona senator offered voters "more of the same." "He's not a maverick. He's a mimic," she said.
