Clinton camp says Obama lacks credentials
Mar 11,2008 00:00 by UPI

WASHINGTON - Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton's campaign said Monday that rival Barack Obama lacks the foreign policy credentials to be U.S. president.

Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson also told reporters that Clinton would not pick a running mate who has not met the national security threshold, but added Obama could meet that threshold by the Democratic National convention in August, The Hill reported.

The comments by Clinton's campaign come after the New York senator has hinted at choosing Obama, the junior senator from Illinois, as her running mate, The Hill reported.

Wolfson also reiterated Clinton's statement that she would not rule out having Obama on her ticket.
