Clinton accuses Obama of plagiarizing part of speech

Okay, I normally don’t comment on politics–but this one was just too tempting to let pass. According to wire reports, Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign has accused Barack Obama of using a passage from another politician’s speech (without credit) in his own.  

As if that isn’t newsworthy enough, Obama claims Clinton has frequently used several of his slogans in her speeches. In particular, he cites such signature phrases as “It’s time to turn the page,” and “fired up and ready to go.” (Apparently, he doesn’t own a cliche dictionary.)

Given this startling revelation, I believe both candidates owe damages to Bob Seger. They used his song title, Turn the Page, without proper attribution.
