Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) issued a round of apologies yesterday for a memo generated by his campaign staff that referred to Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) as a senator from the Indian region of Punjab and criticized her record on outsourcing.

Pointing the finger at his campaign staff, Obama told the editorial board of the Des Moines Register that he "thought it was stupid and caustic." Obama said that the memo "not only didn't reflect the complicated issue of outsourcing . . . it also didn't reflect the fact that I have long-standing support and friendships within the Indian American community," according to a story on the paper's Web site.

Obama also wrote a letter of apology that was posted on the Web site of the South Asians for Obama group yesterday afternoon. The memo, compiled by Obama campaign staff members and initially sent to reporters on the condition that they could not attribute it to the campaign, was later circulated by Clinton advisers as evidence the Obama campaign is not as elevated as it has promised.

"The memo's caustic tone, and its focus on contributions by Indian-Americans to the Clinton campaign, was potentially hurtful, and as such, unacceptable," Obama wrote.

"In sum, our campaign made a mistake. Although I was not aware of the contents of the memo prior to its distribution, I consider the entire campaign -- and in particular myself -- responsible for the mistake. We have taken appropriate action to prevent errors like this from happening in the future."
