Obama's "plagiarism"

Mike and Noam have already done a great job explaining the ridiculousness of the Clinton campaign's charge that Obama plagiarized from Deval Patrick, but I thought I'd add one more point. Obama's already on record as admitting he borrows lines from Patrick (and vice versa). Stumping in New Hampshire last December, Obama said:

"But you know in the end, don’t vote your fears. I’m stealing this line from my buddy (Massachusetts Gov.) Deval Patrick
who stole a whole bunch of lines from me when he ran for the
governorship, but it’s the right one, don’t vote your fears, vote your
aspirations. Vote what you believe."

I look forward to the Clintons' next desperate gambit.
