Clinton Targets Obama on the WebThe Hillary Clinton campaign has secured two domain names for Web sites that will be devoted to attacking Barack Obama. A Clinton representative says negative sites are nothing new, but the Obama campaign says Clinton's latest Internet efforts are "politically motivated attacks in the eleventh hour of a closely contested campaign."

Wait, before you go…
The Clinton campaign disputed the notion that its pending attack websites will be the first, noting that after it was revealed that Clinton had taken questions from supporters at events, Sen. John Edwards, D-NC, in November launched the short-lived website PlantsForHillary.com, purporting to be from various forms of flora supporting the New York senator, though that website was taken down after a day.
A Clinton campaign official argued that Obama’s campaign has a website called HillaryAttacks.BarackObama.com, which catalogues criticisms Clinton has made about the Illinois senator. (Not to be confused with the anti-Clinton site HillaryAttacks.com, which is not affiliated with the Obama campaign.)
Clinton’s campaign has also introduced, quietly, a Web site called Attacktimeline.com, which Clinton officials say chronicles the ways Obama and Edwards were criticizing her publicly long before she began returning fire.
