Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama said Wednesday that rival Hillary Rodham Clinton's less-than-straightforward answers in a Democratic debate raise questions about her ability to assume the presidency. "This may be smart politics by Washington's standards, but it's not what America needs right now," the first-term Illinois senator told The Associated Press in a telephone interview from Chicago. "Turning the page means offering the American people a clear sense of your principles and where you'd lead." Obama complained that during Tuesday night's debate Clinton did not provide clear answers on a number of occasions. "After the most secretive administration in memory, an administration that consistently misled the American people, we need a president who is going to be open and forthright," Obama said, referring to the Bush administration. "I think last night's debate really exposed this fault line. Senator Clinton left us wondering where she stood on every single hard question from Iran to Social Security to drivers' licenses for undocumented workers."
