PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island (CNN) - It was one week ago Sunday that Hillary Clinton stood in the rec center at Rhode Island College and mocked fellow presidential candidate Barack Obama for his campaign's theme of hope, saying Obama can't just "wave a magic wand and have the special interests disappear."
Now, this Saturday, the Illinois senator took that same stage and couldn't resist bringing up her comments, now immortalized on Web sites like YouTube.
"I think she was here, right?" Obama said toward the end of his stump speech. "She was saying 'Oh, you know, he thinks that the clouds will part and… [that] he's so naïve.'"
The room quickly erupted in "boos."
"Wait, wait, wait," he said.
"He thinks he can wave a magic wand," he continued, mocking Clinton's impression, "and suddenly everything will be great."
Obama then went in to his standard stump lines, saying it's true he "talks about hope a lot." He then defended his rationale in doing so.
