Strange, Terry, strange. (but not bad)

Paper: Clinton campaign chair photographed holding Obama signs

Terry McAuliffe, former chairman of the Democratic National Committee and now-chairman of Senator Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, has been mysteriously caught in three photographs smiling and holding an Obama for president sign with supporters in Washington state -- according to a blog at the Chicago Tribune.

The Clinton campaign has not contested their authenticity. An email sent to Clinton's spokesman Monday was not returned. McAuliffe is said to be generous in posing for photographs.

The photos were acquired by the Chicago Tribune's Swamp blog.

"What's really interesting, as you can see from these photos, is that McAuliffe posed with supporters of Sen. Barack Obama's presidential campaign and that a beaming McAuliffe helped them hold up their large Obama signs for the camera," Swamp author Frank James wrote Monday morning. "McAuliffe is wearing his Clinton button but it's dwarfed by the Obama sign he's holding.

"We don't want to read too much into these photos," he added. "But it's definitely striking to see the chairman of the Clinton campaign smiling broadly into the camera while holding up a campaign poster for Obama with whom Clinton is currently engaged in a fight to the death."
