Hillary Chides GOP Ads About Her

Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton downplayed GOP’s efforts to use critical statements she made during the Democratic primaries against her party’s presidential nominee at the Democratic National Convention Monday morning.

Over the weekend, the Republican National Committee released a television advertisement suggesting Barack Obama did not pick Clinton to become his vice president because her attacks on his candidacy struck too close for comfort.

“The truth hurt, and Obama didn’t like it,” the narrator in the ad says. The clip then cuts to snippets of Clinton saying negative things about Obama’s campaign like “you never hear the specifics” “we still don’t have a lot of answers about Senator Obama” and “Senator Obama’s campaign has become increasingly negative.”

“I’m Hillary Clinton, and I do not approve of that message,” the former contender told a group of New York Democrats at a breakfast meeting.

Monday convention activities have all been planned around a “unity” theme, a concept Clinton stressed vehemently while recognizing her party’s turmoil through the primaries.

"Let there be no mistake about it. We are united. We are united for change. We are, after all, Democrats - so it may take a while," she said. "We're not the fall-in-line party. We're diverse. Many voices, but make no mistake. We're united. We are united behind Barack Obama and Joe Biden."
