Hillary Clinton’s number one attack dog, Maureen Dowd is at it again. This time she has started a war between the two camps, with Barack Obama calling Hillary Clinton a liar and Hillary’s minions slamming Obama again.

Meanwhile, Obama backer David Geffen jumped in the ring today by calling Hillary “reckless” and slamming the Marc Rich pardon.

Maureen Dowd’s column in The New York Times today, in which she quoted former Bill Clinton supporter David Geffen offering a few caustic comments, has incited a strong Hillary Clinton campaign attack on Geffen — and the candidate he now favors, Sen. Barack Obama.

Then Obama’s team fired back.

“Everybody in politics lies, but they [the Clintons] do it with such ease, it’s troubling,�? Geffen had said.

Clinton campaign spokesman Howard Wolfson released the following statement this morning: “While Senator Obama was denouncing slash and burn politics yesterday, his campaign’s finance chair was viciously and personally attacking Senator Clinton and her husband.

“If Senator Obama is indeed sincere about his repeated claims to change the tone of our politics, he should immediately denounce these remarks, remove Mr. Geffen from his campaign and return his money.

“While Democrats should engage in a vigorous debate on the issues, there is no place in our party or our politics for the kind of personal insults made by Senator Obama’s principal fundraiser.”

What Obama still doesn’t realize is that he has no chance to win the nomination. Hillary’s friends in the “impartial” press will see to that, and today’s attacks are only the beginning.
