Clinton: Bush Comments "Offensive And Outrageous"

Hillary Rodham Clinton is standing up for her rival Barack Obama as comments from President Bush stir up controversy amid the pool of his potential successors.

Obama is accusing Bush of a "false political attack," after
the president warned against appeasing terrorists during a speech
in Israel.

The president said: "Some seem to believe that we should
negotiate with the terrorists and radicals," a move he calls a
"foolish delusion." The White House denies Bush was targeting
Obama.

Clinton says the comments were "offensive and outrageous," and
have "no place in any presidential address."

Obama's campaign took the comments as a criticism of his
position that as president he would be willing to meet with Iran's
leaders and those of other regimes the U.S. considers rogue.
