Hillary’s campaign falters as top aide quits

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's bid for the presidency has taken yet another hit. Her chief political strategist, Mark Penn, has resigned after he lobbied for a free trade agreement with Colombia, which Clinton opposes.

Penn attended a meeting with the Colombian ambassador in a separate role as chief executive of a public relations firm.

Clinton is vying with Senator Barack Obama to become the Democratic presidential candidate.
