Obama says more Clinton foreign policy experts support him

Barack Obama suggested that he has more foreign policy experts from the Clinton administration backing his candidacy over Hillary Rodham Clinton's, but lists provided by both campaigns show hers is nearly twice as long. Clinton's campaign on Friday provided more than 80 names of her husband's former foreign policy advisers who are publicly backing her, while Obama's campaign provided 47. Asked how Obama backs up the claim of greater support, campaign spokesman Bill Burton said the senator was referring to an article that ran in The New York Times Magazine last month, which quoted an anonymous foreign policy expert saying most of the community was backing Obama. Obama's comment, at a campaign stop with just 13 days until Iowa's presidential caucus, came in response to a questioner who asked him to compare his foreign policy vision with the former first lady's.
