Did Clinton Copy Edwards?

The other day Hillary Clinton's campaign released information about their election night plans. The release sounded similar to something we've read before. The Clinton release is erily similar to the release the Edwards campaign sent out on December 13th. It appears that the Clinton campaign copied and pasted the language from the Edwards election, right down to the punctuation. Specifically they copied the billing and credentialing language.

Edwards release: Billing – The campaign will coordinate and arrange for technical installation and the costs will be billed back to your organization. The total costs will vary depending on the needs you are requesting and the number of outlets that participate. Approximate costs will be given to you as soon as details are worked out.

Clinton's release: The campaign will coordinate and arrange for technical installation and the costs will be billed back to your organization. The total costs will vary depending on the needs you are requesting and the number of outlets that participate. Approximate costs will be given to you as soon as details are finalized.

Edwards release: TOTAL number of credentials requested (This includes ALL people from your outlet who will be attending. Note – we will make every effort to accommodate the number requested but cannot guarantee all credentials until details are finalized. Credentials will be picked up on-site at the credentialing table; time will be provided when finalized):

Clinton's release/website: This number includes ALL people from your outlet who will be attending. Please note – we will make every effort to accommodate the number requested but cannot guarantee all credentials until details are finalized. Credentials will be picked up on-site at the credentialing table; time will be provided when finalized.

This AJC report implies that Senator Obama would be the toughest Dem nominee for Republicans to beat if he gets past Clinton and Edwards.
