Now, Obama was a ' PART-TIME' State Senator? HELL NO

Hat tip: The Daily Dish

From TPMElection Central:

Check out this little nugget from the campaign trail in Nevada, as per the Las Vegas Review Journal:

Clinton implied that Obama's career has mostly been spent running for office rather than governing.

"He was a part-time state senator for a few years, and then he came to the Senate and immediately started running for president," she said. "And that's his prerogative. That's his right. But I think it is important to compare and contrast our records."

Um, no.

He was an Illinois State Senator for 8 years. Nothing 'part-time' about that, Senator 'I got everything because of who I married' Clinton. In fact, he has more TOTAL elected experience than YOU DO. And, he was never HANDED anything either. He EARNED both his Illinois State Senate seat, AND his Illinois Senate Seat, beginning from nothing.
