    Yep. I even read this bit and the other Snopes explanations about Clinton's comments being quoted out of context:

    "The above three statements are all out-of-context passages taken from a 4 June 2007 CNN "Presidential Forum" conducted with three Democratic presidential hopefuls, senators John Edwards, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton. The second statement was part of a straightforward expression of the need to for people to reach a consensus (through metaphorically giving up some of their political "turf," not literally giving up their possessions) on how to proceed in order to tackle an issue such as universal health insurance, while the first statement is another pieced-together quote that omits the contextual references to the issues of health care, dependence on foreign oil, and climate change."


    Honestly, Bobby, this is pretty amateurish stuff, even for you.

    I'd have guessed Emperor Obama as well, but definitely not surprised to know the answer!
