"That's different"

HATTIESBURG, Miss., March 7 -- A top foreign policy adviser to Sen. Barack Obama resigned from his campaign Friday after describing Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton as "a monster" in comments to a Scottish newspaper.

As the two rivals took their battle for the Democratic presidential nomination to Wyoming on the eve of today's caucuses, Clinton suggested that a series of comments from Samantha Power showed Obama is unprepared to be president.

Power, a Harvard professor who has long advised Obama on foreign affairs, said of Clinton in the Scotsman, "She is a monster, too -- that is off the record -- she is stooping to anything." Power apologized to Clinton in a statement and resigned from the campaign Friday morning.

Asked about the comment, Clinton said, "I think Senator Obama did the right thing" in accepting Power's resignation.

But asked how the comment differed from her spokesman Howard Wolfson's remark Thursday likening the Obama camp's negative campaigning to the tactics of former special prosecutor Ken Starr, Clinton appeared caught off guard.

Then she said, "One's an ad hominem attack, the other [on Starr] is a historical reference."

The Power gaffe allowed the Clinton camp to divert the message from his edge in contests in Wyoming on Saturday and Mississippi on Tuesday. Her staff arranged two conference calls on the issue, and her unscheduled news conference here swamped news Web sites through the day.

*** So, if Professor Powers had called Hillary a "Hitler" for instance, she'd have had no problem with that
