SMILE: Clinton on Rezko "I don't know the man!"

In one of the most heated exchanges in Monday night's debate, Hillary Clinton railed against Barack Obama, exclaiming that while "I was fighting against those [Ronald Reagan's] ideas when you were practicing law and representing your contributor, Rezko, in his slum landlord business in inner city Chicago."

Obama clarified that it was only five hours of legal work done, not on behalf of Rezko, but for a community organization he was representing.

Now, a photograph has surfaced showing the smiling Clintons with developer Tony Rezko. Clinton told the NBC Today show this morning: "I don't know the man. I wouldn't know him if he walked in the door."

Sounds like the Clinton mudslinging has backfired. As they say, if you play with dirt, you're going to get dirty.
