Clinton reveals she once accidentally shot a fellow hunter

Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, criticizing Barack Obama's remarks about bitter rural dwellers who "cling to guns," revealed that she once accidentally shot and wounded a campaign contributor during a weekend quail hunt on a friend's Arkansas ranch.

The 78-year-old wounded man ended up in intensive care at a Little Rock hospital after being hit by several pellets of birdshot.

After reiterating his regret for his choice of words, Obama turned the tables on Clinton — mocking, among other things, her sudden fealty to the rights of gun owners.

"She is running around talking about how this is an insult to sportsman, how she values the second amendment. She's talking like she killed a guy. We all know he lived."

Obama continued, saying "Hillary Clinton is out there like she's on the duck blind every Sunday and she has Gumbo Mudders on her 4-wheel drive and a winch on the front bumper and she chews Red Man Chewing Tobacco. Come on, she knows better. That's some politics being played by Hillary Clinton."
