Presidential hopeful Barack Obama on Tuesday told high school students that when he was their age he was hardly a model student, experimenting with illegal drugs and drinking alcohol.
'I will confess to you, I was kind of a goof-off in high school. My Mom reminds me of that,'' said Obama, an Illinois Democrat who grew up in Hawaii.
According to the the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll, Sen. Barack Obama beats Sen. Hillary Clinton 2-1 as the most honest and trustworthy candidate. She has less support in Iowa than nationally in trust to handle a variety of specific issues. Obama now runs evenly with her on the topic of Iraq. And she's third in Iowa among men.
Obama signaled Sunday he would only support a future Iraq funding measure if it included a deadline.
“We are going to bring an end to this war and I will fight hard in the United States Senate to make sure we don’t pass any funding bill that does not have a deadline,” Obama told the crowd.
The New York Times adds this quote from Obama: “No timetable, no funding. It is time to bring this to an end.”
