'Cause even the quote thingy with your fingers won't get us to listen to you, Bob. Ben Smith: Obama, whose campaign jumped on Robert Novak's sugge
May 11, 2008

those finger quotes don’t help, Bob.

'Cause even the quote thingy with your fingers won't get us to listen to you, Bob.

Ben Smith:

Obama, whose campaign jumped on Robert Novak's suggestion earlier this year of Clinton dirty tricks, mocked Novak's column today that Michelle [Obama] has nixed Clinton as a vice president...

[Senator Obama] dismissed it with a flit of his hand. He nearly didn't say anything, but then offered: "My wife does not talk to Bob Novak on a regular basis."

Dang, and I was gonna call Michelle Obama to find out if her new confidante Bob Novak got a subpoena in the Plame lawsuit.

Can you help us out?
