Question 10

Williams to Obama: You have a more liberal voting record than Ted Kennedy. How can you run in the general on this?

Obama says in looking at what the National Journal considered when making the rankings, he and Hillary have two differences; one is on immigration, the other is on an ethics issue regarding in-house monitoring of potential issues.

Obama says that second example shows "how silly these ratings are."

He notes that he is attracting more independent votes and Republican votes in the primaries because those voters are rejecting the usual suspects in Washington and the "proof is in the pudding."
