The drug war continues: In a statement, Barack Obama spokesman Bill Burton says he finds it "troubling" that neither Hillary Clinton nor her campaign "is willing to condemn" Bob Johnson for suggesting -- although he denies doing so -- that Barack Obama was using drugs while the Clintons were working for civil rights. Burton calls Johnson's explanation of his remarks "tortured."
