Clinton, Obama clash RODRIGUEZ
From Page 1
in final debate before
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Demo-
crats Barack Obama and Hillary
Rodham Clinton sparred, for the
most part cordially, over immi-
gration, health care and the war
in Iraq in their first one-on-one
debate on Thursday as they faced
high-stakes Super Tuesday con-
tests that could go a long way
toward determining the party's
Clinton emphasized that the
nation needed a president ready
to go to work on "Day One."
Obama responded: "Part of the
argument that I'm making in this
campaign is that it is important
to be right on Day One."
Five days before Super Tues-
day, the two alternated between
civility and pointed swipes,
underscoring the importance
of the upcoming contests. The
debate came as Obama's cam-
paign reported raising a stagger-
ing $32 million in January, cash
aplenty to advertise all through
the nearly two dozen upcoming
races from coast to coast - and
Clinton's campaign reported
raising $26.8 million from Octo-
ber through December, the most
recent period she reported.
Clinton defended the increas-
ingly high-profile role of her hus-
band, former President Clinton,
in her campaign and his recent
sharp criticism of Obama. "Atthe
end of the day, it's my name that
is on the ballot."
Both were asked about the
possibility of a "dream ticket"
of Clinton-Obama - or Obama-
"Obviously there's a big differ-
ence between those two," Obama
said. "I respect Senator Clinton,
I think her service to this coun-
try is extraordinary." But he said,
"We've got a lot more road to
travel" before such a decision.
Clinton agreed it was too early
to discuss running mates.
Both predicted that one of
them would be the next presi-
dent in a history-making inau-
gural. Obama would be the first
black president, Clinton the first
Clinton said the Republicans
are "more of the same" and, ges-
turing toward Obama, she said,
"We will change our country."
Making amends for his appar-
ent snub of her at Monday's
State of the Union Address,
Obama assisted Clinton by pull-
ing back her chair as the debate
- televised on CNN - began and
ended. They then embraced.
But it wasn't all sweetness and
One of their most pointed
exchanges came on the question
of whether illegal immigrants
should be able to obtain driver's
licenses. Obama supports doing
so; Clinton initially supported it
and now opposes it.
"Senator Clinton gave a num-
ber of different answers over
the course of six weeks on this,"
Obama said, turning to Clinton.
"Initially, you said you were for
it, then you said you were against
it." He said he was raising her
wavering to underscore that it is
"a difficult political issue."
Clinton called the contro-
versy "a diversion" from efforts
to come up with comprehensive
immigration reform. "I co-spon-
sored immigration reform in
2004 before Barack came to the
Senate," she said.
Obama argued for his candi-
dacy, saying, "I respect Senator
Clinton's record. I think it's a
terrific record. But I also believe
that the skills that I have are the
ones that are needed right now to
move the country forward, oth-
erwise I wouldn't be running for
They also clashed on Iraq.
Clinton suggested only she
had "the necessary credentials
and gravitas" to lead the country
in withdrawing from Iraq with-
out endangering U.S. forces or
further destabilizing the region.
But if West Virginia's lawyers
successfully move the university's
suit from U.S. Federal Court to
Monongalia Circuit Court in West
Virginia, the letter of credit would
have no value.
Rodriguez's lawyers have until
Feb. 12 to respond to the request
filed by West Virginia's lawyers
to have Rodriguez and his wife go
under oath in court and take ques-
tions about where he lived when
the suit was filed.
Marvin Robon, an attorney rep-
resenting Rodriguez in the case,
said when Rodriguez signed a letter
of intent to coach at the University
of Michigan on Dec. 16, he received
a Michigan driver's license and a
lease on an apartment in Michi-
gan, and was registered to vote in
On Jan.18, West Virginia's attor-
neys argued to move the case back
to Monongalia Circuit Court in
Morgantown, where West Virginia
University is located, citing several
pieces of evidence that Rodriguez
still lived in the state of West Vir-
ginia when the university filed the
suit against him.
The university's attorneys pro-
duced a Federal Express envelope
from Jan. 10 sent to Craig Walker,
the chief of staff for West Virginia
president Mike Garrison, which
listed Rich Rodriguez as the sender
with a Morgantown address listed
as the return address.
Robon said he advised Rodri-
guez not to put his Ann Arbor
address on the Federal Express
envelope because it would make his
Ann Arbor address available to the
public and endanger Rodriguez,
who has received numerous threats
since becoming Michigan's head
Robon said he would be soon
provide the U.S. District court with
documents proving that Rodri-
guez has citizenship in Michigan
- something that would keep the
case in federal court.
Jeffrey Wakefield, an attorney
representing West Virginia, said
he believed that Rodriguez's wife
continued to live in West Virginia
and that his children continued to
go to school in West Virginia after
the lawsuit was filed, which proved
that Rodriguez was still a citizen of

often during his campaign.
In response, Walton said black

agreed with Walton.
"I don't believe that he should be
put on a pedestal just for being an
African-American man," he said.
"As president, Obama needs to look
out for all Americans, not just citi-
zens of his own race."
The panel seemed confident in
senator's ability to lead, but those
in attendance were hesitant to pre-
