Hillary Clinton commented publicly for the first time about her personal apology to Senator Barack Obama after one of her top campaign officials brought up his adolescent drug use as an issue.

In a Washington Post interview published December 12, Clinton co-campaign chair Bill Shaheen discussed the drug use Obama details in his memoir "Dreams of My Father." Shaheen has since resigned over his comments.

The Obama Campaign sent out a fundraising letter condemning Clinton's attack.

During the press conference today, Clinton was asked:

"I wonder if you would take the opportunity to say that a candidate's indiscretions as a teenager should not be an issue on which voters should make there decision?"

Clinton replied, "Well I apologized to Senator Obama yesterday. It's certainly not an issue in my campaign. And I said that to Senator Obama."
