Obama Says He's Immune to Attacks by Republicans

NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) -- Democratic presidential contender Barack Obama says his foreign policy record leaves him immune to attacks by Republicans.

During a campaign stop in North Las Vegas, Obama told a crowd that if he were the nominee, his GOP opponent would not be able to say he supported the war in Iraq or that he flip-flopped on his positions, because he didn't.

Obama also pointed out that he did not support a recent Senate resolution branding Iran's Revolutionary Guard a terrorist organization. His chief rival for the party's nomination, Hillary Clinton, did vote for it. He didn't mention her by name.

Earlier, in Reno, Obama told a crowd that President Clinton's effort to reform health care in 1993 failed because Hillary Clinton only worked with "her own people" and shut out potential allies.

The Clinton campaign says it's unfortunate that Obama's camp is "abandoning the politics of hope and instead employing the same old attack" strategies.
