WASHINGTON (AFP) - Senator Hillary Clinton on Sunday decried the use of her voice in computer-disseminated "robo-calls" by Republican presidential candidate John McCain's campaign. The phone calls, which automatically dial up voters in hard-fought battleground states, play a recording of Clinton during the Democratic primary battle. In the recording Clinton derides what she said was a lack of experience by then-rival and fellow Democrat Barack Obama, who went on to win the party's presidential nomination. "Senator Hillary Clinton does not approve this message, and as she criss-crosses the country, she has said time and again that the choice in this election could not be more clear," said the former first lady's spokeswoman Kathleen Strand. "The McCain/Palin ticket offers only more of the same failed policies, while the Obama/Biden ticket offers the vision, leadership and positive solutions we need. I wonder why the Republicans aren't using those words?" Strand said. According to news reports, the robo-call starts out with a voice saying: "Listen to what Hillary Clinton had to say about John McCain and Barack Obama." The recording of Clinton, dating back to the Democrats' primary campaign, is heard to say: "In the White House, there is no time for speeches and on-the-job training. "Senator McCain will bring a lifetime of experience to the campaign, and Senator Obama will bring a speech he gave in 2002," Clinton says in the recording. "I think that is a significant difference," said the senator's voice on the robo-call, which reportedly is circulating in Ohio and Pennsylvania.
