Obama Denies Flipping Hillary

The Obama campaign denies that Obama gave Hillary the infamous one-finger salute:


A spokesman for the presidential campaign of Illinois Sen. Barack Obama has criticized The Ticket for making a "false and childish accusation" in an item Thursday that the candidate's one-fingered gesture during a speech that day might have been the finger aimed at his Democratic Party opponent instead of an innocent finger aimed at brushing his cheek or scratching a scratch.

As displayed in a video clip, Obama was criticizing Washington for its gotcha politics in general and New York Sen. Hillary Clinton specifically as being "in her element" there. As he mentions her name, he brushes his cheek twice with the middle finger of his right hand.

The crowd certainly seemed to think that Obama used the obscene gesture. Lsten to the reaction as Obama uses his middle finger to scratch his cheek:

What do you think -- did Obama flip Hillary the bird? Go to Right Side Politic
s and vote.
