From ABC

ABC’s Sunlen Miller Reports: Barack Obama jabbed at Hillary Clinton (without naming her) over who is more electable, scoffing that the argument is being made by someone with a 47 percent disapproval rating.

Obama told supporters in Portsmouth, N.H., “For whatever reason I keep on defying this notion that somehow the American people are not ready for me.”

He said it’s an argument being put out by unnamed people who sound an awful lot like Bill and Hillary Clinton.

That argument, he said, is “just is not borne out. And right now among all Democratic nominees or Democratic candidates I do better in a general election match-ups than the other candidates.

“And this argument is being pushed by the way by a candidate who starts off with a 47% disapproval rating,” Obama continued. “You know, so, I’m not going to mention names but I mean the notion that a viability or an electability argument is being made by somebody who starts off with almost half the country not being able to vote for (pause and laughter) them doesn’t make sense.”

“But you know in the end, don’t vote your fears. I’m stealing this line from my buddy (Massachusetts Gov.) Deval Patrick who stole a whole bunch of lines from me when he ran for the governorship, but it’s the right one, don’t vote your fears, vote your aspirations. Vote what you believe.”
