CINCINNATI (TDB) -- Barack Obama as a right winger? The Clinton campaign now contends the Illinois senator's plan to deal with the foreclosure crisis is worse than the White House effort:
"Sen. Obama is positioning himself to the right of President Bush. The Bush administration recently reached an agreeement with the mortgage industry to implement a limited foreclosure moratorium and a loan modification program that could result in rate freezes for at-risk borrowers. In December, the administration announced another plan that also called for a rate freeze for qualified at-risk borrowers. While this plan is not sufficient, it goes farther than Sen. Obama."
