Hillary said she was "too busy" running for President make her tax forms public, as Barack Obama has done, but she expects Obama to take time of the campaign trail to conduct Senate oversight hearings.

NBC's Tim Russert asked her, "Why won't you release your tax forms so the voters of Ohio, Vermont, Texas know exactly where you and your husband got your money, who might be in part bankrolling your campaign?" during the Democratic debate last night in Cleveland, Ohio.

Clinton told him, "I'm a little busy right now. I hardly have time to sleep." (If you are looking for this exchange in the link above got to the section titled "Clinton's records").

Today, Fox News got a hold of a memo from the Clinton camp accusing Obama of being "too busy" to take his senatorial duties seriously.

The memo says Obama has neglected his duties as a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee because he hasn't called any hearings on NATO troops stationed in Afghanistan. (Obama chairs the Subcommittee for European Affairs.)

It states, "By his own admission, he was too busy running for President to conduct a single substantive hearing of the committee he chairs."
